Welcome to The Parents' How-To Guide to Children's Mental Health Services in Massachusetts.

Have You Ever Found Yourself Wondering...

  • Is my child's behavior just a phase?
  • Can my child's school help us?
  • Should my child see a professional?
  • What other services are out there?
  • How do I pay for them?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you've come to the right place.


The Boston Bar Association, with support from Boston Children's Hospital, has developed The Parents' How-to Guide to Children's Mental Health Services in Massachusetts, which answers all of these questions and more. It takes you through the mental health system step by step, from deciding if your child needs care to getting specific services.
