Connecting to Care Helps Families

Having a child with behavioral health issues can be challenging at times – we are here to help! Wrap CT offers several resources that can help you understand options, choose care, and coordinate multiple providers and resources.

Collaboratives

Community collaboratives are local groups whose members meet regularly to discuss behavioral health care within the community. Families are encouraged to attend to learn about resources needed, support system change, and to share their personal experiences with the child’s behavioral health issues. Providers, educators, and other caregivers also attend these meetings, allowing for family members to learn options to better manage their child’s behavioral health issues.
