Support group for parents
School is back in session and for many children, so is the academic and social stress that can cause 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.
The meeting is free, confidential, safe and led by trained volunteer facilitators who themselves have had personal experiences raising children with these concerns. Parents may speak freely and be understood without embarrassment or the fear of being judged or treated differently.
Upcoming meetings are Monday, Sept. 26 and Oct. 24, from 10 to 11:30, at the G&B Cultural Center, 49 New Street, Wilton.
