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.

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).
