- Select the emotion your child is feeling today and the presentation will bring you to the slide which matches that emotion and shows new strategies and activities you can utilize!
In this week’s edition of the commissioner’s report to school leaders, Commissioner Riley alerted us to the website HandholdMA.org. This is a user-friendly website for Massachusetts families who are worried about their children’s mental health. In addition to one-page handouts (printable posters) for schools to post and share with families, there is a 30-minute recorded webinar available showing key features of the website, as well as how to use the website to locate mental health resources for children in Massachusetts. HandholdMA.org is designed to be an additional tool, in addition to your pediatrician and school counselors, to help you figure out if your child’s behavior is something to worry about and if so, what next steps can be taken.
