My husband is non-custodial parent, mom sabotages relationship between him and 15 year old daughter.  CHild refuses visitation, says she will never visit again.  Concerned about mental health of mom, how can we get independent assessment? Mom has had custody for life of child, have seen her only two times in past 18 months.  Child is suffering from depression and teacher had to call to get her mom to get her some help, is now on medication, but mom will not get her counseling.  Any suggestions??

It's likely that she's being actively alienated. You may want to look at the articles on parental alienation:

To fight visitation denial you need to take several steps: actively fight it, document it, and if necessary, go to court.

First, start using both of these letters on a regular basis:

Notice Of Intent To Exercise Visitation

 - and -
Denial Of Visitation Form Letter

Second, start documenting and keeping records of the visitation denial/interference. For tips on keeping documentation, look at this article:

For effective documenting of visitation denial or interference, get yourself either the Parenting Time Tracker (PTT) at: http://www.deltabravo.net/custody/tracker.htm or the OPTIMAL Custody Tracking service at: http://www.parentingtime.net. The PTT is free, but is somewhat limited and requires Microsoft Excel to run. The OPTIMAL service is more thorough and has a number of key features that the PTT doesn't.
