The directory lists family-run and youth-guided organizations and support groups throughout the United States, US Territories and Tribal Nations. You can search our database to find organizations across the country run by families or youth consumers that are working to support families who have children and adolescents with emotional/behavioral and or mental health challenges and to improve mental health services and supports. This service was designed as a component of the Research and Training Center for Children's Mental Health's Study 6: Assessing the Role of Family Organizations in Developing Family Voice in Systems of Care

The Directory provides contact information for family and youth organizations and support groups seeking to connect with other family and youth organizations; assists families and youth in locating other organizations' websites; helps families, system of care planners, and practitioners to identify existing family-run and youth-guided organizations and the types of services and supports provided; and, provides the latest and most accurate information on family-run and youth-guided organizations whose focus is on children's mental health issues.
