GREAT RESOURCE FOR MENTAL HEALTH SUPPORT!!!
If you or your child experience mental health challenges such as depression, anxiety, autism, ADHD, or another challenge, then NAMI (National Alliance for Mental Illness) has an online support group to help you. They also have brief online courses that help you understand mental illness and how to support your loved ones with mental illness. I've heard they are really good!
