About the Author

Terry Russell established the first specialized mental health program for children, youth and families in southern Saskatchewan. Children's mental health has not traditionally been a priority for governments and Terry describes what it took to make people pay attention to the needs of children and he analyzes how community forces can be mobilized to make things happen.
He discusses major national and international initiatives that have influenced service development for children - CELDIC, the International Years of the Child and of Youth, the growth of advocacy organizations and other events that have helped shape how we meet the needs of children and youth.
