Mental Health Resources


Every parent wants the best for their child and worries if he/she experiences emotional or behavioral challenges. Some ups and downs such as moodiness, arguing or challenging rules are normal. However, when an emotional or behavioral change becomes extreme, or begins to upset life at home or school, intervention may be necessary.

A child, teen or adult behaving in an extreme or overwhelming way, posing a threat to self or others, needs immediate help. Do not hesitate to call 911 to reach Wellesley Emergency Response. 

Emotional problems are as common as physical ones, and taking care of both can help your child. The listings in the Parent Resource Guide provide information and resources for parents or caregivers.


The Mental Health Resource Guide offers information for residents of all ages.

Take an anonymous and confidential online screening.

If you have additional questions please contact the Wellesley Health Department at 781-235-0135.
