** COVID 19 UPDATE** Parents for Children’s Mental Health is working to keep our volunteers and staff healthy during the COVID—19 pandemic and we continue to monitor the rapidly changing developments.  Groups will begin in a virtual environment in October 2020.

COVID-19 is impacting people in various ways and it is understandable that during times like these many people are feeling worried, anxious, overwhelmed, and this is further complicated by many of the resources we rely on being closed during this pandemic.

We want to remind you that there are still options to access supports for your and/or your children.
