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 emotional support.
For our families in Cleveland, Ohio, here are just a few ideas for resources.
- NAMI Greater Cleveland serves residents across the Greater Cleveland region with free mental health support, online groups, resources, education and community events. Visit https://namigreatercleveland.org/ to learn more.
