Help Your Keiki

Background: Parents and caregivers often don’t know where to start when their child is experiencing major emotional or behavioral difficulties. Difficulties can include inability to concentrate, extreme anxiety about a variety of events, exposure to a traumatic event, depressed mood, trouble developing relationships, or many others issues.

Purpose: The Help Your Keiki webpage is a website for parents, by parents in collaboration with the State of Hawai‘i’s Evidence-Based Services (EBS) Committee. Since 1999, the Evidence‐Based Services Committee has been promoting best practices to serve children and adolescents with mental health needs. With that goal in mind, the EBS committee developed this website. Parents and caregivers can use this website at every stage of addressing their child’s difficulties.
