FamilySmart is an organization that offers a variety of supports to families whose children may have mental health challenges.
These supports include:
- providing families with an opportunity to speak with other families who understand and may be able to offer support or advice on what has worked for them
- providing families and professionals with information, tools, and tips on how to support and assist children with mental health difficulties
- Parent in Residence program: a parent in your community who has lived experience with mental health challenges and who can provide you with resources and support.
