Supporting children means supporting their parents!

SUPPORT FOR PARENTS AND CAREGIVERS

The Parent Support Network is a parent-driven, family focused program for parents who are concerned about their children’s emotional, mental, or behavioral health. Each affiliate of The Parent Support Network holds free, monthly, in-person, parent support meetings run by volunteer, trained Facilitators who are parents with lived experience raising a child who has struggled with his or her mental health. Providing parents with a dependable and caring network, valuable peer support, and access to peer recommended resources in their local communities makes a huge difference in their ability to help their children.

OUR IMPACT

In the inaugural year of the program, The Youth Mental Health Project launched 10 affiliates in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Oregon, and Texas, trained 39 volunteers, held 62 meetings, and supported 593 parents. The demand for more affiliates and meetings is overwhelming, and we can not do it without supporters like you!!

Your donation will help us support parents and caregivers!
