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.
New Survey Coming Soon! A special thanks to Question Pro for supporting the Parent Network and the Idaho Federation of Families

This presentation helps parents understand how to talk to their tweens and teens about the changes that occur in their lives as they go through puberty. Strategies and tools for having these discussions are provided and include information on physical development, relationships, and social behaviors. In addition, information will be shared about risk factors that can put children with mental health conditions in dangerous situations including managing technology and online behaviors.
