Parent Information Network (PIN)Children, Youth, and Family Services

The Parent Information Network (PIN) is a parent information, support, and advocacy program designed by parents and professionals to help families who have children with serious emotional, behavioral, and/or mental health challenges.  PIN helps parents and caregivers stay connected with other parents to help reduce the stress and isolation many feel as they cope with raising a child with mental health needs.  The program is staffed by trained Parent Coordinators (PCs) who have faced similar challenges parenting their own children.  PIN is funded by the Massachusetts Department of Mental Health (DMH).

PIN serves the Southeastern Massachusetts Area in DMH site offices.  Services offered by PIN include monthly parent support groups; one-on-one support from PCs, including telephone support and attendance at school and family meetings; parent/community education, including free workshops; family activities and events; and a resource center that includes information on services in the community.  All services are confidential and free of charge.
