On Wednesday, April 29th, Legislator John Ferretti launched a mental health resource webpage geared towards providing assistance to Nassau’s children and families. The page includes contact information to mental healthcare professionals that specialize in adolescent and family counseling. The resource page is intended to assist those children and families struggling with the Coronavirus and the quarantine. The resources are free of charge to utilize and residents can remain anonymous.

"As a father of two young children, I know that the COVID-19 outbreak and quarantine are having an effect on our children and families psychologically. Children are out of school, missing the normal camaraderie with friends, and all their pent-up energy, once released on the playground, no longer has an outlet," said Legislator Ferretti. "This leads to our kids inevitably "melting down," causing more stress for the entire family."

Legislator Ferretti’s mental health resource page for children and families can be accessed by visiting: https://www.nassaucountyny.gov/4986/Mental-Health-Resources-for-Children
