Mental Health

Family Paths

Announcing, Family Paths continues to offer live phone support for parents through our newly renamed Parenting Stress Helpline, as stress levels go up over health and well-being due to COVID-19. Today, we're announcing that the portal to live support and our mental health treatment and supportive services changed from the 24-Hour Parent Support and Resource Hotline to the Parenting Stress Helpline. The Helpline is here for Alameda County parents during this acutely stressful time and can be accessed by parents, and those in parenting roles, without leaving their homes. Fathers or father-figures are encouraged to call.
