Keep the Ball Rolling for Children’s Mental Health

 

 

Parent Voice Survey – A project of the Parent Network

The goal of this and future surveys will be to gather opinions and stories from parents of mentally ill children around the state so that your voices can also be heard. Together we can help create the system of care that our children need.

We ask that parents in Idaho with children diagnosed with a mental illness take a moment to fill out the survey and have their voices heard.

Please complete the following questions so that we may take your information directly to those who are working to create a better system for all of us and our children.

 

The implementation of the Jeff D Settlement has transitioned into YES – Youth Empowerment Services. Check out the new webpage that provides information about the Children’s Mental Health Reform (CMHR) Project which is developing a new system of care for Idaho children and youth with Serious Emotional Disturbance (SED).

A Panel Discussion 

Sometimes a parent with a “shared experience” can be the most helpful resource when feeling overwhelmed by raising a child with mental health challenges, drawing from their own parenting experience and additional training.

 Certified family Support Partners (CFSP) work directly with families in the families’ homes to provide the  needed support and education to become knowledgeable about child serving systems, how to become effective advocates for their children, and better able to access needed services and supports.
