National Directory of Organizations Serving Parents of Children and Youth with Emotional and Behavioral Disorders. Third Edition.
Wagner, Colleen, Ed.
This directory contains information about organizations in the United States that offer the following types of services to parents of children and youth with emotional and behavioral disorders: support groups; education; training; referral; advocacy at the case or systems level; transition services; or direct assistance such as respite care, child care, or transportation. The listings represent a wide range of organizational types, including, among others, self-help organizations coordinated by and for parents with no professional involvement, groups started by staff members of service-providing agencies, and groups sponsored by other organizations. The first section provides an overview of mental, emotional, and behavioral disorders of children and youth. The second section lists national resources available to parents and professionals. The third section, comprising the bulk of the document, lists the states alphabetically with the resources available within each state. For each state, there is also a list of the state's contacts for the Child and Adolescent Service Program (CASSP) office, the Protection and Advocacy Center, and the state's mental health department.
