Family Partner (mental health)

Family partners work to give voice to, and promote recovery and resiliency within, families of children with mental, emotional and behavioral health challenges. They work to raise awareness and reduce stigma around mental health in schools, faith communities, state agencies and communities. It is a form of family peer support and is recognized by SAMHSA as an evidence-based practice.
