Family Connections: A virtual community for parents and caregivers

About this event

We invite you to join us!

Hosted by the National Family Support Technical Assistance Center, “Family Connections” is a virtual community for parents and caregivers who support loved ones facing substance use and/or mental health challenges. Families tell us they need credible resources, guidance to accessing help, and the opportunity to connect with others facing similar challenges. Monthly gatherings will focus on a specific topic, provide tips and tools, and offer the opportunity to network with other families.

Family Connections take place the first Thursday of every month at 1:30 ET.

Our February discussion topic is “How to Find the Right Campus Supports for Your Student Experiencing Mental Health or Substance Use.”

Join us from 1:30 - 2:30 p.m. ET on Thursday, February 3rd.
