CATCH

CATCH, Community Action Together for Children's Health, offers many opportunities to find support, learn, and connect with one another.  Please take a moment to learn about and register for upcoming CATCH events.

Featured CATCH events:
Tech Transitions - Tuesday, October 11 @ Noon
It's a challenge for every parent these days: How do you get your kid to take a screen break without a battle? Register for the next Lunch & Learn and discover the best strategies to help kids turn off tech.

Parents Connect
Parenting is hard.  Parenting a child with mental health issues is harder. Join a group of other parents who are walking in your shoes.  Parents Connect meets weekly to provide a place where people can share their experiences in a confidential setting and find the support that makes a difference.
