1. The Annie E. Casey Foundation (AECF)  

Founded in 1948, the primary mission of the Annie E. Casey Foundation is to foster public policies, human-service reforms, and community supports that more effectively meet the needs of today's vulnerable children and families. In pursuit of this goal, the Foundation makes grants that help states, cities, and neighborhoods fashion more innovative, cost-effective responses to these needs.   

The AECF is a nationally recognized research, public policy, and educational not-for-profit organization. AECF was founded by Jim Casey - who was also the founder of UPS. The work of the AECF - quoting text from their website - focuses upon these following areas:    

  • Child Welfare/Permanence. By making grants and providing direct services, the Casey Foundation is addressing the challenges in the child welfare system to ensure that all children, regardless of age, race, culture, national origin, sexual orientation, special need or complex circumstances, have lifelong connections to a caring, nurturing family 
  • Community Change. We are fully invested in building better futures for millions of disadvantaged children in tough neighborhoods -- areas where poverty is concentrated, crime is common, safety is elusive, and essential services are unreliable. 
  • Economic Security. We believe that improving the lives of disadvantaged children requires a combination of strategies designed to strengthen families and neighborhoods. Ensuring family economic security is an important part of this approach. 
  • Education. Our education investments have two primary aims: 1) to support initiatives that give more low-income parents the opportunity to send their children to high-quality schools that produce strong results, and 2) to help families get needed services and support through stronger connections between schools and communities. 
  • Health. Many of our nation's most vulnerable children and families do not have access to good, affordable health care and health services. The Casey Foundation believes that these conditions can be fixed, improving all families' health and their ability to contribute in the worlds of school, work, and the community. 
  • Juvenile Justice. The Casey Foundation's juvenile justice reform agenda is designed to improve the odds that delinquent youth can make successful transitions to adulthood, primarily by reforming juvenile justice system so that they lock up fewer youth, rely more upon proven, family-focused interventions, and create opportunities for positive youth development. 
  • Special Interest Areas. The Casey Foundation is raising national awareness about the issues facing particular groups of disadvantaged families who face even tougher odds than most. These families face hurdles that make economic self-sufficiency and long-term success especially difficult to achieve."

2. The Center For Health Care Strategies (CHCS)    

The Center for Health Care Strategies (CHCS) is a nonprofit health policy resource center dedicated to improving the quality and cost-effectiveness of health care services for low-income populations and people with chronic illnesses and disabilities. We work directly with states and federal agencies, health plans, and providers to develop innovative programs that better serve people with complex and high-cost health care needs.  

CHCS's national activities focus on three core priorities (quoted from their website):

5. National Center for Children in Poverty (NCCP) at Columbia University    

A primary purpose of this not-for-profit research and advocacy organization is helping to raise awareness – among policymakers, leaders, the media, and the general public – about the issues that impact poor and low-income children and families.
This organization's website offers a rich source of documented information about children and families who live in poverty in the United States. Effective approaches to treatment and community support of such children and families is nationally recognized.
We currently offer a certificate for demonstrating an understanding of the materials presented in one of their online research articles, "Maternal Depression and Its Impact on Young Children".

8. Links to Sites Which Contain Information Specifically for Clients and Parents - Addiction and Mental Health

National Guideline Clearinghouse™ (NGC) and other national organizations have noted the value of online information for clients as well as for professionals.  The following sites contain information and/or links to information designed especially for mental health and addiction clients.  They are designed for educational use only and are not intended to replace advice from a healthcare professional. 

Some of these sites (e.g., Accredited Schools Online) address the mental health challenges and questions of parents and young people preparing for college, including the management of mental disorder such as bipolar and anxiety disorders in a college environment. 

 

There are online resources designed specifically for children of parents with alcohol and drug issues, and for those whose addiction to tobacco is associated with mental health issues.   And there's a  new and timely online resource which explores the mental health issues arising from the stress of student loan debt - Anxiety, Depression, Debt and Suicidal Behavior, and more.  Only home mortgages account for more debt in America than student loans, and the associated stress is resulting in a significant increase in mental health issues. 

  • Addiction Resource  - Understand It, Treat It, Recover
  • Student Loan Stress and Mental Health
  • American Addiction Centers - Dual Diagnosis Information for Clients
  • A Parent's Guide - Preventing College Alcohol and Drug Abuse
  • A Quiet Epidemic:  Substance Abuse Among Nurses
  • Quit Day - Tobacco Use and Mental Health 
  • Healthfinder (U.S. Department of Health and Human Services)
  • MedlinePlus (U.S. National Library of Medicine)
  • National Institutes of Health Consumer Health Information
