A mother and daughter are lying on the floor, smiling and drawing together. The mother is wearing a striped shirt, while the daughter is in a white top. Both have curly hair and appear happy and engaged in their activity. In the bottom right corner, there is a logo that reads "Parent Guidance.org Mental Health Resources." The background features a softly patterned wall.

The West Virginia Department of Education is offering families access to coaching, a question-and-answer forum, and on-demand courses through ParentGuidance.org. The mental health needs of children continue to evolve, and these resources will provide families, caregivers, educators and others free mental health supports to help children.
