Flu Information for Parents & Caregivers of Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs from the Department of Health.

The Family Voices Immigration Toolkit is a collection of documents designed to inform, empower, and assist families of children and youth with special health care needs (CYSHCN) and the professionals who support them to prepare for the possibility of an emergent immigration situation and/or to collect supporting documentation that accurately reflects the extent of hardship on the health and well-being of a child with SHCN if s/he or the caregiver is detained or removed. This toolkit differs from others in that it uniquely addresses and supports the needs of CYSHCN in terms of the documentation, including specific templates for doctor letters and a documentation organization checklist. (*This toolkit is not intended to be legal advice.)

Information on Personal Care Services: if a child has Medicaid and needs assistance with activities of daily living beyond what their same-age peers require, they can qualify for personal care.

The National Organization of State Offices of Rural Health has developed a compendium of all Rural Opioid Educational Resources available across their website to aid individuals looking for education, tools, and other resources. This includes reports, webinar presentations, meeting presentations, and a compendium of resources and lessons learned from grantees of the Federal Office of Rural Health Policy’s Rural Opioid Overdose Reversal (ROOR) grant program. As new resources become available, more information will be added. Click here to visit the NOSORH page.
