Check out our NEW local Teen Care Package program currently running in the Boston area! This program creates and distributes care packages to teens and adolescents who have been admitted to McLean-Franciscan Child and Adolescent Inpatient Program located in Brighton, MA. The care packages include items of comfort as well as our Parent and Teen Depression and Bipolar Wellness Guides to help support young people going through the difficult process of psychiatric hospitalization. This is a program completely run by volunteers.

To help, you can:

  • DONATE supplies (eg: socks, crossword puzzle books, crayons, polar fleece blankets, stress balls, toiletry items, playing cards, baskets to hold the items, etc)
  • ASSEMBLE the care packages locally in the Boston, MA area.
  • DELIVER the care packages to the hospital in Brighton, MA

This is a great opportunity to help young people facing the frightening experience of hospitalization and to support their families with mental health resources. Most importantly, it serves as a small reminder that they have a community who cares about mental health and believes in healing.
