Peers Support Parenting Well

Register Today! Registration is free and required for participation.

Presenters: Joanne Nicholson, Rob Walker, Anne Valentine

Peer supports may be particularly relevant and useful to parents with psychiatric disabilities. The purposeful disclosure of shared lived experience, combined with practical knowledge and systems expertise contribute to relationship engagement and inform ongoing conversations as peers partner with parents to meet needs and address goals. The proposed model of parent peer supports includes four core elements: engage, explore, plan, and access/advocate. Creating organizational capacity and coping with challenges in providing peer supports will be discussed, with recommendations for training, coaching and on-going support for peers and parents. The ParentingWell practice approach will be introduced as a model for shifting the system’s paradigm to a family focus in adult mental health services.
