A diagnosis of a mental or behavioral health disorder can be stressful for patients and parents alike—but you are not alone. In addition to your care team here at the Boston Children’s Hospital Department of Psychiatry, you can find a wealth of good information posted by other sources; opportunities to connect with parents in similar situations; and a number of local and national organizations that may be able to help. Visit the following sections to learn more about:

  • general mental health information
  • specific diagnoses
  • connecting with other families
  • finding healthcare providers
  • school services and information
  • government agencies that deal with mental health issues
  • legal assistance

The future of pediatrics will be forged by thinking differently, breaking paradigms and joining together in a shared vision of tackling the toughest challenges before us.”
