Weekly Support Groups
We know that children with behavioral and emotional disabilities are often misunderstood and may:
- have difficulties building relationships in their communities
- act out at home
- have difficulty meeting educational requirements at school
- start misusing substances
- sometimes end up in the criminal justice system.
We provide critical support to parents/caregivers and families who may otherwise be isolated and overwhelmed dealing with these issues. We empower parents and families by offering parent-to-parent support, advocacy, education and meaningful participation in all aspects of the services children and families receive.
We pride ourselves in being leaders in the State of Maine in developing family voice by helping to ensure that parents and families are involved in the planning and delivery of behavioral health services for children.
We want you to know that you are not alone. If you need support now, call our statewide team at 800-264-9224
Our regional family support coordinators and family peer specialists are available to help you. Reach out now or when you feel in need of extra support.
