Narrative

The Support Network for Families of Western Massachusetts is the Western Massachusetts affiliate of PAL, the Parent Professional Advocacy League.  We support families/caregivers in Berkshire, Franklin, Hampshire, Hampden and North Quabbin Counties who have a child with mental health challenges. We do this through support group meetings, assistance in attending conferences and workshops, information, referral, an extensive library, newsletter, assistance with advocating for their child's medical, social, emotional and/or educational needs and assistance with negotiating through and with the various service providers.

The Network also is a partner with Clinical Support Options in Franklin County in the Children's Behavioral Health Initiative providing the Family Partner component of the Intensive Care Coordination
