The National Federation of Families has partners and state and local chapters all across the country, providing our ground work in the communities that you may live in. Take a moment to see what affiliates may be in your area and reach out to them to become involved in their activities. This is one of the best ways you can support the work that we do for children's mental health. If there isn't a chapter and/or state organization in your locale, we encourage you to consider starting one. If you are interested in learning more about what it takes to start a family-run and youth-driven organization, please feel free to contact us.


Additionally, our mailing list has more than six thousand members nationwide committed to supporting children with serious mental health, emotional and behavioral disturbances and their families. These individuals come from all walks of life and represent a wide variety of individuals: youth, family members, clinicians, government officials, etc. Each plays a vital role - we look to our diverse membership to help spread the positive message that children with mental health challenges and their families can build upon their strengths to become resilient and successful in their everyday lives. We would love for you to sign up to join our free mailing list and begin following us on social media today.
