MHA’s Sibling Support Groups are for brothers and sisters of children who experience a social, behavioral or emotional challenge.  We offer ongoing support, education and recreation.  We work toward helping decrease the level of stress in the family as well as increase the understanding of the sibling’s disability.  There are two support groups:  one for siblings ages 5-12 years and one for siblings ages 13-18 years.

 There is no fee for this support program.

I have been with MHA since 2009. I am the Program Specialist for the Sibling Support groups. I have held that position since August 2015. Prior to that, I ran The Kid’s Inc. program, along with providing one-on-one respite. I am also the Supported Education Coordinator, working with referred ACCES/VR students attending Dutchess Community College.
