Upcoming virtual event:

Free behavioral text hotline for parents in California

Thursday, March 14, 2024 at 12:00 p.m. PDT

Venue: Facebook
Price: FREE

Thanks to an NIH grant, Undivided has partnered with researchers at Stanford and the University of Oregon to provide the Family Advice and Support Text and Telephone line (FASTT), a text-based service available for caregivers to receive customized advice and support on questions about challenging behaviors and managing stress related to caregiving. Parents can text as little or as much as they want, and they can pause and come back when they have time. The most asked for topics include:

  • Behavior – help your child participate in activities for their safety and health.
  • Managing emotions – support your child in developing healthy ways to deal with frustration, anger, and other big emotions.
  • Social skills – provide small steps toward skills that promote socialization and interactions.

Join us in conversation with Dr. Shannon Peake, one of the researchers behind FASTT, as we talk about the program and its impact on parents. FASTT is still open to new parent signups, so attend this event to learn how to participate! (FASTT is available to all parents of children under age 10 in California — no Undivided membership required.)
