Welcome to Idaho Federation of Families for Children's Mental Health

Idaho Federation of Families for Children’s Mental Health is a family-run nonprofit organization that actively promotes and seeks solutions for mental health well being for our children and youth.

We work with government, nonprofit, and for-profit organizations for the needs of children with emotional, behavioral, and mental disorders and their families. We are a chapter of the National Federation of Families for Children’s Mental Health.

Parents Communicating as Equals in the YES System of Care

Idaho’s new YES system of care will be a “Family-Centered” approach that emphasizes family strengths and encourages families to be actively engaged in the process of creating and implementing a plan of care for their child. Sounds good BUT what does that really mean and how do parents prepare for this? Join Janet Hoeke from the Idaho Parent Network and Sarah Tueller, Parent Educator, Idaho Parents Unlimited as they discuss how to be equal partners in a collaborative team process where families share their unique needs, strengths, experiences, and perspectives.
