Description:

Individualized Parent Advocacy and Parent & Youth Support Groups are services that support families with children that have behavioral health needs. Individualized Parent Advocates assist and train parents on how to navigate
public and private systems in support of their children. These trained specialists
advocate on the behalf of families, recruit and engage and support family members. They engage with professionals, community members at large and other key stakeholders, broker services and resources on behalf of families and offer support for families who are seeking services.


Parent & Youth Support Groups provide an array of activities and supports such as participation on child and family teams, planning and implementing family/youth activities, and identifying and linking traditional and nontraditional supports. These support groups provide a place and space for parents and youth to address issues and share advice and experience to problem solve and cope. Social and emotional needs are addressed.
