% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Both programs were cognitive-behavioral mentoring interventions designed to improve child behavior and family functioning among 8- to 12-year olds with mental health disorders, and their primary caregivers. One program used one-on-one mentoring and the other a group-mentoring model.
In the program using one-on-one mentoring, there were significant differences between the intervention and control groups on measures of child behavior, parenting stress, perceived social support, and attachment to parents.
In the program with group mentoring, although there were significant improvements on measures of social problem solving and behavior problems, there were no improvements on measures of attachment to parents and social skills among children in the intervention group, compared with the control group.
