Parents Together (PT)

  • Ongoing group that meets weekly
  • For parents of youth (13-19)

Parents Together is a professionally facilitated education and group support program for parents who are experiencing challenges while parenting a teen.  Parents come to group with a wide range of concerns.  Most commonly, parents worry about their teen's mental health, lack of motivation, substance use, abusive or aggressive actions, and their defiant/rebellious attitude.  Many parents reaching out for support often feel guilty, blamed by others, isolated, and are not sure what to do. Parents Together can help address these feelings parents often begin to feel less alone and more confident in their parenting. This is all provided in a confidential, non-judgmental group setting.
