Holly Sabara and Jeff Warner – Holly and Jeff are the loving parents of 3 boys in Guelph, ON. Their oldest son struggles with a variety of serious mental health disorders and challenges.

Over the past 9 years they have navigated and worked with many different levels and branches of the mental health system across the province as they advocated for their son. Holly and Jeff identified the lack of a local support group for parents of children with mental health disorders, which lead to becoming PCMH group leaders in Guelph.

Holly and Jeff share a passion for helping families navigate the system, listening to their journeys and advocating for their children. Since 2017, Jeff has served on the Parent Advisory Council for CPRI, in London, ON and Holly is currently the Parent Council Chair for their grade school in Guelph.

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 just wanted to say how pleased I am at the fact that PCMH is extending it's communication to the web. The increases to the website and the monthly Web Newsletter are helping … Member, Windsor
