Resources for Meeting Critical Health and Human Service Needs


Families and educators can call Mass 2-1-1, a 24/7 service for information about critical health and human service needs, and access HandholdMA.org, a new family-friendly website designed for parents of school-aged children in Massachusetts who are worried about their child’s mental health.

HandholdMA.org

This is a free resource that allows individuals to find tools and strategies that have worked for other families to help you and your child improve their behavioral health from home and assists with finding community resources and professionals to help guide you and your child.
