This video explains kinship care and describes a study on the well-being of children in informal kinship care. Survey data were matched with child welfare administrative records. Findings indicate that 75% of children had known involvement with Child Protective Services (CPS). Higher numbers of CPS cases were associated with both poorer physical and emotional health outcomes. The authors argue for better recognition of the trauma and the unmet health care needs of these children. The pediatric community should be aware that children raised by kin without a parent have an increased risk for mental health issues.
