Recognizing the impact the COVID-19 pandemic is having on children’s mental health, the Baker Administration recently launched HandholdMA.org, a new family-friendly website for parents and guardians of school-aged children who are concerned about their child’s mental health. The website provides families with tips, tools, and resources designed to help them navigate their child’s mental health journey. The content, which is targeted to families with kids age 6-12 years, was developed by a team of mental health and child development experts as well as family and community partners. Developed with input from individuals representing diverse Massachusetts communities, the content is available in six languages: English, Spanish, Portuguese, Simplified Chinese, Haitian Creole, and Vietnamese.
