Update from the most recent edition of the
Making Connections newsletter

Dear friends,

In the last year, JF&CS helped more than 3,000 people address a mental health need. Staggeringly, 40 percent of the callers to our Mental Health Connect line were concerned about a child, teenager, or young adult—a stark reminder of the realities of our nationwide youth mental health epidemic.

As a parent myself, I know those challenges, and talk about them regularly with so many people. A constant refrain is that people simply don't know where to start.

These challenges are extremely difficult, to be sure. But fortunately, JF&CS is in a position to help. There are no magic bullets to the epidemic, but having a trusted resource can make navigating the journey so much easier.

Please read on for a few examples of our resources to support the mental health of young people and families, and contact us at 781-693-5562 or mentalhealth@jfcsboston.org if we can be of service.
