The Parent Support Network™


Local support for parents and caregivers1 whose children are struggling with mental health challenges is essential to improving outcomes when it comes to our children’s mental health. Providing parents concerned about their children’s mental health with a dependable and caring network, valuable peer support, and access to resources in their own communities is paramount for real change.

The Parent Support Network was developed as a parent-driven, family focused program to make peer to peer support available in any community. The Youth Mental Health Project aims to build affiliates of The Parent Support Network™ in communities across the country because we believe that no parent should suffer alone and in silence when a child is struggling with his or her mental health.

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.
