When searching for materials about children's mental health, some good search strategies include searching general subject headings, such as Child health services or child welfare, as well as the very specialized topics such as emotional behavior disorder, systems of care, juvenile justice system and individualized education programs (IEP). Other search strategies include searching for specific disorders and then ANDing the search with the terms mentioned above.
In addition to topical search strategies, it might be worth spending some time to see how better to use the USF Libraries' resources and research tools. These links will lead you to the FMHI Research Library homepage where you can click on the Instructional Videos tab at the left to see the learning units available online.
