Chapter Leader - Yvonne McEachern

Yvonne McEachern is a mother of two children, aged 11 and 14, a dog and a cat.  She has recently completed an undergraduate degree in Psychology and is working towards a Certificate in Children’s Mental Health.  Yvonne’s family has struggled for over ten years with her oldest child’s mental health and has navigated the public and private mental health systems.  Over the years, she has sought the support that her child needs to manage a variety of disorders including sensory processing disorder, chronic tic disorder, intermittent explosive disorder, learning disorders, and a possible mood dysregulation disorder.  She started the PCMH Chapter in Georgetown because she is interested in supporting other parents who are navigating the children’s mental health system.  Yvonne’s other interests include knitting, spinning, reading and genealogy.

 

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.
