About Our Children
Having a child with a mental health disorder can be confusing and overwhelming.  As parents, we need information so that we can make decisions that are best for our child.  Emotional support from someone who has been there can also be very helpful.

Research-based knowledge suggests that biological, social, psychological and environmental factors are all important.

A wide range of therapeutic, educational, and social services are essential to address the need of these children.

Our Goals—To Educate, Empower, Support
To advance the unique needs of children with mental health diagnoses and their families, to dissolve the stigma attached to children’s mental illness, to encourage and recommend research, prevention, early intervention, family support, and family-centred and family-driven care, to work with mental health agencies and government to ensure that children and their families with these unique needs and struggles have access to community based services to help them reach their full potential.
