Mental Health Resources.

Special help is available, in some states, for families with children and adolescents, who have serious emotional disturbances, through projects funded by the Center for Mental Health Services within the Federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. These projects were created with the vision of providing services for individuals through "systems of care:" community-based, comprehensive, coordinated, flexible, family-centered, and culturally competent.

These support projects are designed to help family-controlled, not-for-profit, private-sector organizations build and maintain networks of family members and others who are responsible for services to children and adolescents with serious emotional disturbances as well as their families. The projects assist individual families through information, referrals, and other support. In addition, they educate service providers, policy makers, and other interested parties about the needs of these children, adolescents, and families.

This directory includes the addresses and phone numbers of these projects. When available, World Wide Web sites and e-mail addresses have been included. Web sites are listed with the the standard http:// before each. E-mail addresses are indicated by the symbol, ??. (Unless otherwise indicated, all telephone numbers are for voice only.)
