The Parent Support Network™


When a child or teen struggles with mental health challenges, parents remain isolated and don’t know where to turn for help. The Parent Support Network is a revolutionary program of The Youth Mental Health Project that was developed to provide parent-driven, family-focused, peer to peer support in local communities. Providing parents concerned about their children’s mental health with a dependable and caring network, valuable peer support, and access to parent referred resources is essential to help communities move beyond crisis and into early intervention and prevention.

Why are we different?

“Peers” are people with common life experiences who can give one another a sense of belonging. Research has shown that peer support facilitates recovery, improves outcomes, and decreases health care costs. Parents of children who struggle with their mental health are uniquely suited to understand and support each other as peers because of their shared experience and emotional understanding of the cultural complexities surrounding mental health.

The Parent Support Network affiliates are located in communities and run by trained, volunteer parent Facilitators who have lived experience raising a child who has struggled with a mental health condition and who understand the parenting challenges that arise. In-person meetings are open to all parents who have any concerns about their children’s (pre-K through college age) emotional or mental health.
