How do I get support for myself?

Parents and caregivers often say that talking to other parents is one of the most useful forms of support. Connecticut has many family advocacy and support centers where trained parents can assist you and link you to local resources. A link to these services can be found here and you can also consult CT’s Community Collaboratives which can link you into other resources. At times, parents may need to get their own treatment and support, and if needed, find a referral at their local community mental health center, private provider, or through their insurance/HUSKY network.
