As school gets into full swing, the academic and social stresses can get to be too much, and result in behavioral changes. The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) Child and Adolescent Network (CAN) is a support group for parents of children with behavioral, emotional and mental health issues. Meetings are free, confidential, safe and led by trained volunteer facilitators who themselves have had personal experiences raising children with these concerns.
The meetings are a place to speak freely and be understood without embarrassment or the fear of being judged or treated differently. Parents come from Redding, Weston, Westport, Wilton and towns in the surrounding area.
Upcoming meetings are Monday, Oct. 26 and Nov. 23, from 10 to 11:30, at the G& B Cultural Center, 49 New Street, Wilton.
