Children in the child welfare system have had many challenges that can include things such abuse, neglect, abandonment, separation from parents and relatives, separation from siblings, etc. As a result, child welfare children should be assessed by professionals who have knowledge of the child welfare system and the mental health issues faced by this specialized population of children.
