The National Council for Behavioral Health has partnered with the Family-Run Executive Director Leadership Association (FREDLA) to showcase Viewpoint Health – a community-based organization that has been integrating parent/family peer support into behavioral health service delivery for more than 10 years – and the Georgia Parent Support Network – a grassroots, family-run organization that works to create a network of support for parents of children living with behavioral health needs. This webinar will highlight the importance of parent/family peer support and the on-the-ground perspective of communities putting it into practice for those they serve.

For agencies serving children, adolescents and their families, integrating parent/family peer support into plans of care can be critical to achieving positive outcomes. Whether providers partner with family-run organizations or parent/family peer specialists are brought on as staff, it has become increasingly evident that their contributions benefit the families they serve and the providers they work with.
