Family-Friendly Resources for Mental Health
To assist in getting the word out about HandholdMA.org, a user-friendly website for Massachusetts families who are worried about their children’s mental health, one-page handouts (printable posters) are available for schools to send families through "virtual" or real backpacks.
These handouts are available in English, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Haitian Creole, Vietnamese, and simplified Chinese. A 30-minute recorded webinar is also available and shows key features and how to use the website to locate mental health resources for children in Massachusetts.
HandholdMA.org is designed to help families figure if their child’s behavior is something to worry about and if so, what next steps can they take.
