The Parent Support Network™


In a world where parents and caregivers help each other navigate the wide- range of challenges associated with raising our children, why do we feel so alone and overwhelmed when our children struggle with their mental health? The vicious cycle of blame, shame, misunderstanding, and silence around our children’s mental health leaves families feeling confused, powerless, and isolated.

Armed with knowledge, support, and tools, parents CAN be at the forefront of the solutions for their children and for the community as a whole. But we can NOT do it alone and in the dark!

Recognizing the utter lack of support for families, The Youth Mental Health Project developed The Parent Support Network, a parent-driven, family focused program, to provide parents who are concerned about their children’s mental health with a dependable and caring network, valuable peer support, and access to peer recommended resources in their local communities.

Each affiliate of The Parent Support Network holds 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.
