Medical and mental health care is one of the biggest and most urgent challenges facing children in the United States, but many families don’t have the resources or expertise to properly care for a child, experts say.

This story is part of the ESPN series, “The Big Picture.”

The issue of child neglect is a hot-button topic in the country, and it’s also getting more attention.

Last year, President Donald Trump proposed new laws to address child abuse and neglect in schools.

Last month, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled against a similar bill in Alabama, which was aimed at addressing child neglect in public schools.

The case is set to go to the U .

S.

Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit next month.

Experts say many children in America are in situations where their health or safety is at risk, which can include abuse or neglect, neglect of an elderly parent or other family member, or other serious illnesses.

Experts say a lack of comprehensive mental health and medical care is also a major obstacle.

“It’s a challenge, because the medical community has been telling us for a long time that the first priority is to treat all of the underlying causes of these illnesses,” said Jennifer S. Nolen, an associate professor of pediatrics at the University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston.

Many people who are chronically ill or suffering from chronic illness also experience mental health issues that may be more difficult to treat.

The problems of chronic illness and mental illness are complicated.

For example, there is the issue of chronic pain.

Chronic pain and physical and mental problems often interfere with a person’s ability to function in daily life, and that can be difficult for them to cope with.

For this reason, many people who struggle with chronic illnesses or chronic pain have difficulty finding a caregiver, and many who do need a caregver are struggling to find one.

Even people with severe mental illness can find it hard to stay on medication for a chronic illness, Nolen said.

That’s because the medication is a major part of their care.

“They have to go through the process of having to get a prescription for it,” she said.

“There’s a lot of time to wait for it, and they’re going to need it for a variety of reasons, including things like being in a nursing home, or having to have an IV or an insulin pump implanted.”

People who are not able to access their medications for a number of reasons can have severe, long-lasting physical and emotional disabilities.

“While mental health disorders can be very complicated, Nulens said, they can also be very treatable.

She said there are some steps that can help a person with a mental health condition, and those steps may be easier to follow if they are part of a well-defined plan.

If you or anyone you know needs mental health treatment, there are a number options available to you, including treatment programs such as Mood-Tracking and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, she said, or even mental health providers who can offer help in other ways.

If you are worried about your child’s mental health, talk to your child about what he or she needs to know and what the appropriate treatment is.”
