Meeting Information

** COVID 19 UPDATE** Parents for Children’s Mental Health is working to keep our volunteers and staff healthy during the COVID—19 pandemic and we continue to monitor the rapidly changing developments.  Our support groups continue to be closed; however, we know that in times like these we still need to be able to access our support systems.  To connect with one of our family peer support volunteers please email:  Please note this is a volunteer, peer lead support email.  We DO NOT provide crisis or clinical services of any kind.  Our emails will be answered within 48 hours. If you, or someone you love is at immediate risk please contact your local emergency services or dial 911.

COVID-19 is impacting people in various ways and it is understandable that during times like these many people are feeling worried, anxious, overwhelmed, and this is further complicated by many of the resources we rely on being closed during this pandemic.

We want to remind you that there are still options to access supports for your and/or your children.

Remember during these times to stay in touch with your support systems and reach out if you need support.

The Niagara chapter is on hiatus until further notice.

Parents for Children's Mental Health believe that children, youth, and their families suffering from mental health challenges deserve our extreme respect and assurance.  We are dedicated to improving the lives of these families.

WE LINK families to important networks within their communities to ensure they get the care they need and the support of families who can relate and support them.

WE UNDERSTAND the issues around child and youth mental health challenges and the stigma that prevents the work and conversations that need to happen.

WE HELP communities and families access important resources so they can begin their journey of healing.

I am amazed at the people willing to share. Wish had this site when my daughter was lot younger … Member, Facebook
