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.

For Families

Whether you are looking to connect with local resources or other local parents, receive support, access our list of respite care providers, or check out our resource library, we can help!

For Youth

Youth M.O.V.E. Idaho is made up of teenagers who want to help people understand what it is like to be a youth affected by emotional, behavioral or mental health issues in Idaho. Their goal is to teach peers, parents, providers, and others about the importance of youth voice.

Webinar Series

You are invited to a Zoom webinar.
When: Feb 14, 2019 10:00 AM Mountain Time (US and Canada)
Topic: A Gift of Love/Helping Your Child Practice Mental Health Wellness 

To be an adolescent is difficult in itself, but add the layer of what our youth are facing today with social media, instant knowledge (true or untrue), and immediate gratification, and it adds a whole new layer to youth being able to achieve wellness. We will be discussing the difficulties that make it hard for youth to achieve mental wellness. There are four areas of focus that work together to either bring wellness into our lives, or lack thereof.

Idaho Federation of Families presenters will be Youth Coordinator Susan Delyea and Family Support Coordinator Carol Dixon. We hope you will join us for this Valentine’s Day Special!
