Mental Health Resource List -- Pittsburgh, PA


New Story Schools prides itself on being a part of the vast and vibrant special education community in the areas that we serve. However, we know that, for most families, the need for services and support rarely ends with the school day. Luckily, most areas offer a lot of additional services for mental health support.

For our families in the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania area, here are just a few ideas for resources.

Community Resources:

  • Allegheny Family Network is a non-profit staffed by family members (parents or caregivers) who have raised or are raising a child with mental health or emotional needs. Allegheny Family Network’s mission is “through peer-to-peer support, education, and advocacy, we partner with families of children with behavioral health needs to improve their quality of life.

  • The Chartiers Center provides outpatient services, tele-health services, acute partial hospital services, a residential treatment program, a mobile psych rehab program, school-based outpatient services, a student assistance program and training and social rehabilitation for individuals with behavioral health needs.

  • Milestone Centers provides “quality, life-enhancing services that promote wellness and the development of human potential to persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities and/or behavioral health challenges.” Visit to learn more.
  • The Staunton Clinic is a mental health and intellectual disabilities treatment and resource coordination center.
