Resources for Teens, Parents & Other Caregivers

From books to blogs to support lines, these are some of our favorite resources. We hope they are helpful.

The Trevor Project

Our trained counselors understand the challenges LGBTQ young people face and are available for support 24/7.

They will listen without judgment. When text, chat, or call, all of your conversations are confidential, and you can share as much or as little as you’d like.

988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline

Call 988 if you are having thoughts of suicide, mental health crises, or any other kind of
emotional distress. Reach free, confidential, trained support. Services are available 24/7,
in English, Spanish, and 250 other languages.

Good Inside podcast

Join clinical psychologist and mom of three Dr. Becky Kennedy on her weekly podcast, as she takes on tough parenting questions and delivers actionable guidance—all in short episodes, because we know time is hard to find as a parent. Her breakthrough approach has enabled thousands of people to get more comfortable in discomfort, make repairs after mistakes, and always see the good inside. You'll gain the tools to embody your authority while developing a stronger parent-child connection, helping you become the parent you want to be and helping your child develop the skills necessary for life success.

Perinatal Support Washington

The first weeks and months of being a new parent can be overwhelming, but you don't have to do it alone. Call, text, or email us. We can help navigate our complicated mental health system, provide information and referrals to local providers, and complete a postpartum wellness plan. We are parents and providers who have been there and understand.

Fussy Baby Network

All babies cry, but some cry more than others. One in five babies is fussy—and many babies struggle with difficulties in feeding or sleeping. For parents, caring for a fussy baby can be exhausting and frustrating.

There is no quick fix, but there is help. Cooper House provides services to families with concerns about their baby’s temperament and behavior during the first year of life through Fussy Baby Network® Seattle/King County. Support is provided through our phone line, or through home visits.

Brain-Body Parenting: How to Stop Managing Behavior and Start Raising Joyful, Resilient Kids

From a leading child psychologist comes this groundbreaking new understanding of children’s behavior, offering insight and strategies to support both parents and children. In Brain-Body Parenting, Dr. Mona Delahooke offers a radical new approach to parenting based on her clinical experience as well as the most recent research in neuroscience and child psychology. Instead of a “top-down” approach to behavior that focuses on the thinking brain, she calls for a “bottom-up” approach that considers the essential role of the entire nervous system, which produces children’s feelings and behaviors.

Washington's Mental Health Referral Service for Children & Teens

We connect families with mental health providers in your community who accept new patients, work with your insurance and fit your child’s treatment needs. The Referral Service is accessible to children and teens 17 and under living in Washington state. Teens between the ages of 13 and 17 can also call the Referral Service to find providers for themselves.

Help Me Grow WA

Whether online or over the phone, we can connect you to the resources you need, when you need them. Find essential food, health and child development resources in your community to support your family.
