Family Partners

As a parent, supporting a child with emotional or behavioral challenges can be stressful and challenging, and navigating systems and services can be frustrating.

Families receiving Behavioral Health services are qualified for a Family Partner. A Family Partner supports caregivers with maintaining consistency and stability in the home. Family Partners have life experiences raising children with social or emotional challenges or other special needs. They can empathize with parental challenges and provide impartial support.

Support Services Include:

  • Learning new strategies to advocate for your child’s needs within systems including schools, medical care, DCF, courts or other systems
  • Finding services and supports in the community
  • Developing your support system
  • Reaching your goals for your child and family
