Tips for Navigating Services

AND UNDERSTANDING MENTAL HEALTH

It can be challenging to know where to start when it comes to finding the right resources for your child. Below are tools, definitions, and a glossary to navigate the process and for understanding the different options available.

Resource Directory

Find a complete list of organizations providing youth and family mental health and wellness services. Find crisis resources, therapists, treatment programs, parent and youth support groups, and more.

Know_Signs_Green

A child’s mental health is just as important as their physical health and deserves the same quality of support.

Mental illness is not something that happens to other people, it touches all of us.

Crisis & relapse happen in isolation ~ recovery happens in community.

Empathy is the starting point for creating a community and taking action. It’s the impetus for creating change.

Depression is an illness, not a weakness and it is nothing to be ashamed of.
