Synopsis: This study examined factors related to mental health help-seeking among New York City parents on behalf of their young children after the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Data were gathered from 180 parents who lived in close proximity to ground zero on 9/11. Results: Fifteen percent ( n =27) of parents engaged in child mental health help-seeking. The strongest child help-seeking predictors were parents' mental health help-seeking for themselves and children's direct exposure to the attacks. A familial orientation to help-seeking combined with children's specific disaster-related experiences may provide the strongest basis for child help-seeking, rather than children's apparent mental health status.
