They may put off reaching out for help and then feel frustrated by the lack of resources available or the wait times involved in accessing the services they so desperately need. Enter PLEO, a peer-based resource where parents who have been there can help you find the resources you need. The helpline is often a first step in finding a compassionate ear and useful information.
