Building Strong Families

Today’s parents are faced with the challenge of raising children in an increasingly complicated world. We offer a number of programs that promote positive parenting and support parents with this difficult, yet rewarding, task. The Mental Health Association of Frederick County strives to promote a satisfying, productive and fulfilling life for all the families we serve.  

Parent Education

The Mental Health Association of Frederick County’s parent education programs are designed to encourage positive parenting, build family strengths, and teach about subject matter that families and youth face today.

Family Support Services

A Family Resource Counselor, also called Systems Navigator, provides direct support, education and resources to parents and caregivers in order to address child and family needs and to build family strengths.

Child Visitation and Transfer Services

The Supervised Visitation and Monitored Transfer Program provides a safe and neutral location for non-residential parents to spend time with their children. Exchanges and visits are fully supervised by trained staff, and positive parent/child interaction is encouraged.
