Many of our children have emotional and mental challenges along with their physical disabilities. Children's Mental Health Month in Massachusetts will showcase many family support services that are participating in a month- long series of events to promote community awareness and spreading the word about and helping the mentally impaired and their families.
The Wayside's Parent Partnership Program is just one of many mental health organizations in Massachusetts hosting events in cities and towns such as Arlington, Billerica, Brighton Framingham, Lexington and Watertown.
Their community workshops include themes such as a Forum for Children's Health Campaign, Legislative Breakfasts, Helping Parents Learning Parenting, There's No Such Thing As A Bad Kid and much more. The month long campaign will end with a May 31st NamiWalks at Artesani Park in Brighton. Please visit the Wayside at www.waysidepp.org for details on many more events.
