It is our pleasure to introduce to you Halton’s Family Engagement Initiative!
“Family is – a safe, caring and nurturing circle of support.” – Halton Families for Families
Halton Families for Families is a Trillium funded community collaborative in partnership with Reach out Centre for Kids (ROCK) and the Halton Prevention and Intervention Committee for Children, Youth and their Families (HPIC). Our goal is to create a place for families who have been impacted by a child or youth’s mental health challenges to come together and engage in supportive and meaningful discussions, creating a growing and caring network of families. A place where sharing experiences can have a positive impact on the child and youth mental health services offered in Halton.
Family experience and expertise are a vital component of improving services in the mental health sector. With your help, we can ensure that children, youth and families in Halton continue to receive high quality mental health services and support that are accessible, timely, meaningful and family-centered. By growing a network of relationships, we can help families feel supported in their communities.
My family’s journey started many years ago and I have learned so much along the way. It seems only fitting that I can now take all of my experience and apply it to my role as the Family Engagement Coordinator. I look forward to meeting you and working together! I believe that when we share a little piece of our own world, great things can happen.
