Cameron K. Gallagher Mental Health Resource Center

Connecting families to mental health resources

Emotional, social and behavioral challenges can be overwhelming and difficult to understand. Our Cameron K. Gallagher Mental Health Resource Center serves as a hub for support, referrals and encouragement.

Our services

  • Care coordinators: Our care coordinators help families understand mental health care options and help them find therapists, psychiatrists or other appropriate services. 
  • Parent and child classes and groups: Our classes and groups are designed to help you thrive. We provide resources and skills to help families navigate mental health needs and build resilience. Schedule coming soon.

Call to speak to a care coordinator or learn about our upcoming classes and groups.

Important note for health care providers: VMAP has launched! CMHRC no longer processes referrals from providers. VMAP provides health care providers with immediate psychiatry consults, mental health resources and care navigation.

If your child is experiencing a mental health crisis 

CMHRC is not a crisis provider. If you feel your child is having a mental health crisis, please: 

  • Call your local mental health agency (community services board) 
  • Call 911 
  • Take them to the nearest emergency room for evaluation 

How you can help your child feel seen in times of uncertainty

  • Starting new traditions (watch a TV series together, take nightly walks, hold a regular game night, etc.)
  • Getting them a little extra support when they need it
  • Finding safe ways to connect via social media
  • Validating their feelings (fear, sadness, disappointment)
  • Keeping a routine
  • Encouraging them to express their feelings in an age-appropriate way (could be drawing for younger kids, writing for older kids)
