The following organizations generously contributed to the Children’s Emotional HealthLink Training Program. Without their support, the training program and this web site could not exist.

Current Funders  

The John W. Alden Trust
The Alden Trust provides grant support to organizations providing care to or administering the needs of children who are blind, developmentally disabled, or who are either mentally or physically ill, and to organizations engaged in research directed toward the prevention of diseases and disabilities particularly affecting children.

Newton-Wellesley Hospital 
Newton-Wellesley Hospital (NWH), a comprehensive medical center affiliated with Tufts University School of Medicine and Harvard Medical School, is a member of the Partners HealthCare Network. Founded in 1881, Newton-Wellesley Hospital is strongly committed to the care children in all areas of health, including their emotional development. We are especially indebted to Michael Jellinek, MD, Newton-Wellesley Hospital’s former President and Chief of the Child Psychiatry Service at Massachusetts General Hospital, for his unflagging support of Children’s Emotional HealthLink.  In July 2012, Dr. Jellinek stepped down as NWH President to focus on his responsibilities as Chief of Clinical Affairs at Partners HealthCare System.
