Invitation to Join Us!
Did you know that there is NO legislation specifically directed at children’s mental health in Ontario?
Parents for Children’s Mental Health in Waterloo Region invite all support groups and parents who are interested in affiliating with the regional PCMH group to join them. We would like to collaborate for the purpose of children’s mental health advocacy. We are working together to educate the people of our region to help drive the movement to legislate standards for the provision of mental health services to our children. We also are looking for parents with new input and ideas to join us. Please contact PCMH Waterloo by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 519-749-8740 Ext. 212.
Our committee meets several times a year to discuss opportunities to educate, inform, advocate and advise parents, the general public and politicians regarding the state of children’s mental health in the province.
Please visit the www.pcmh.ca website for upcoming events!
Watch for the annual Parent Conference. PCMH organizes courses with content that specifically teaches parents and mental health agencies about running parent support groups, advocacy, self-care, etc. It is a weekend filled with networking, learning, and above all, a common experience for parents who may feel that they are alone in their quest to improve services for their children! The conference fees are quite reasonable. You may try approaching your local children’s mental health service provider to assist you financially to attend.
