Let's create a community and support one another.
Parents Connect brings parents and caregivers together in small groups to talk about the challenges they face raising children with mental health struggles.
It was really nice to have an understanding group of parents to be able to bounce thoughts, struggles, and ideas off of each week. A group of parents who don’t judge your parenting or your child’s conditions can be difficult to come by, but Parents Connect provided that to me.
Groups Are Ongoing
Who: Parents Connect groups are for parents who have children that are struggling with mental health issues. We gather without judgement to share our struggles as parents and find community and new approaches to parenting during a time that can feel isolating and scary.
When: Groups will meet on a regular schedule either in person or via Zoom.
Kids Ages 6-13, Wednesdays, 1pm-2pm
Kids Ages 6-13, Wednesdays, 7:30pm-8:30pm (not meeting during the summer)
Teens Ages 12-18, Thursdays 7:30pm-8:30pm
Adult Children 18+, Thursdays, 1pm-2pm
Why: When parents and caregivers connect and learn from others in small, confidential groups they feel less alone, knowing that there are other people who are walking in similar shoes. Within the supportive cohort, participants can share comfortably and discover new strategies and different perspectives. We hope participants will find a network of parents to talk with during and beyond the program.
What: Parents Connect is made up of groups of four to eight parents with children in the same age range. This program brings each cohort together weekly for a one-hour, confidential conversation. Groups are facilitated by a fellow parent (not a trained therapist) who has experienced mental health issues with their child.
