What’s it like? Over Zoom, siblings meet other children and teens who know what it’s like to have a brother or sister with behavioral
challenges. Siblings have a chance to talk, learn coping skills and feel better. The Zoom is facilitated by psychiatrists and trainees at UMass
Chan Medical School.
What about parents & caregivers? First-time participants join a Zoom session led by our trained parent mentor. They learn about the sibling
experience, the importance of supporting siblings, and strategies to support siblings. Returning participants join a different Zoom session,
led by the program social worker, to address ongoing family challenges that impact siblings.
Registration is required. We meet the first Thursday night of each month at 5:30pm.
