Resources & Information for Parents, Caregivers and Families
If you need help now, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline:
If you or someone you know needs support, call or text CHADS Family Support Line: 314-952-8274
When you have a child with a physical illness such as diabetes or cancer, people often rally around you to offer support. But when you have a child with depression and/or another mental or behavioral health issue, you might feel at powerless and not sure where to turn for advice. We want you and your family to know, you are not alone.
