Celebrating 25 Years of the Family Voice

The National Federation of Families for Children’s Mental Health is a national family-run organization linking more than 120 chapters and state organizations focused on the issues of children and youth with emotional, behavioral, or mental health needs and their families.


News in the Field and Elsewhere

Come learn the latest and greatest trends in Mental Health First Aid, how the evidence-based practice has rolled out in Oregon, and exchange ideas for successful MHFA programs with instructors around the state.

If it is not trauma-informed, it is not recovery-oriented or person-centered. Trauma-informed is not the new flavor of the month, but a change in culture and way of transforming an organization to live their mission, vision, and values. Learn how to make the case for trauma-informed care and how to lead your organization in joining the hundreds of organizations nationwide working toward this powerful culture change. Start by building understanding of why being trauma-informed is critical, learn the seven domains of trauma-informed care, and learn to set the stage for implementing a trauma-informed culture. This webinar is presented by National Council for Behavioral Health, in partnership with Relias Learning.

The National Federation of Families for Children's Mental Health, a core partner of the TA Network, will present the final Learning Exchange conversation in its "Taking Family Driven to Scale" series*, Development of Policies and Procedures to Ensure Family Driven Practices.

Join the call and take part in the conversation. If your community collaborative team, SOC governance committee or agency has developed policies around family involvement, we want to hear about it. If you have questions on how to develop policies and procedures, then you too should join the conversation.
