Our Chat Line is a confidential support line that family members can call for support, resources, and general information on raising children and young adults (to age 26) with social, emotional, behavioral and mental health challenges.

Emphatic Listening From Real Supportive Parents

As a parent rearing a child who has social, emotional, behavioral or mental health needs, it can be difficult to share your story with someone who has no idea what you may be going through, let alone experienced such as the calls from the school or looks from family members or strangers. Chat Line representatives have had these experiences and understand some of the feelings you may be experiencing.

The Chat Line is available between the hours of 9 am and 4 pm, Monday - Friday. If you are calling after hours leave a message and someone will be in touch within 48 business hours.
