For Families of Children and Youth with Special Needs
View group

It’s not always easy to find the right support group.  Each group has its own dynamics. There are support groups for almost any topic you can imagine. Some are specific to medical diagnosis; others may focus on better communication with schools or provide information about medical or therapeutic options. Once you find a group that you want to join, contact the leader and ask questions.

The Framingham Resource Center is happy to announce a FREE group for siblings (Ages 6-12) of children with mental health challenges.

When a brother or sister has mental health challenges, the sibling(s) may also be impacted. This is a great opportunity for the other siblings to come relax and have some fun with other siblings who experience similar life situations.

Groups will meet in-person the month of October every Tuesday 4:00-5:00pm
October 4th, 11th, 18th, 25th

88 Lincoln St, Framingham
