PARENT SUPPORT GROUP
This support group is a free drop in group, available to any parent who is concerned that their child might be struggling with a mental health issue. This can be something such as ADD, or some sadness, lots of worries or perhaps something more defined. This is a Pro Bono group offered for parents to come together and share ideas, offer support to each other and realize that they are not alone in our concern for our children. Facilitators are: Dianne Walsh, LICSW (Cognitive- Behavioral Therapist) and Sue Hanly, RN (school nurse at Stony Brook School). All groups include discussion and sharing by any member who is interested in getting feedback from the group. You do not need to be a Westford resident to attend.
To be included on the group email: feel free to contact: Dianne Walsh, LICSW (DWalsh@perkinschool or 508-566-3189) or Sue Hanly, RN (firstname.lastname@example.org or 978-501-0837)
