CHD Resources

Teens to Adults
MLH aligns itself with the Adult Congenital Heart Association (ACHA). in its policy that all adults with CHD receive care from a cardiologist who specializes in CHD. This is also set out in the guidelines from the American College of Cardiology and American Heart Association.

For more information on helping children transition to specialized adult care, visit the ACHA website. On this website, there is even a directory of centers where there is specialized adult CHD care. In addition, they have a travel directory for adults with CHD who are traveling or moving to other areas in the United States.


“Mended Little Hearts allows parents to support each other and new families in a way that only another congenital heart defect family understands, giving families a sense of hope and security. When my son was finally home from the hospital, I was terrified, scared and depressed. When MLH came into my life, I finally felt a sense of security—knowing that I wasn't alone and other parents felt the same way I did.”
