O’Hora, Kendra A., and Megan L. Dolbin-MacNab.  GrandFamilies: The Contemporary Journal of Research, Practice and Policy 2, no. 1 (2015): 5.

The authors of this article examine the unique needs of grandfamilies who utilize mental health services in their communities in order to better aid professionals in helping grandparents and grandchildren. They discuss the qualitative results of a survey that interviewed 40 grandmothers and their grandchildren on their experiences with mental health services. Using these results, the authors outline key recommendations to improve services for grandfamilies.
