Synopsis: This study examines the use of family education and support (FES) services within a community mental health context. Data from the national evaluation of the Children’s Mental Health Initiative indicate that after six months of services about one-third of caregivers (n=3,387) received FES services. Clinical characteristics of children whose families received FES services and caregiver strain were found to be more severe at intake into services. Implications for the impact of FES services on children are discussed.
