Help for the Hard Times Workshop

Supporting Your Family After a Mental Health Crisis

Are you a parent or caregiver of a child or youth who has been a patient in a psychiatric unit or had an ER visit due to their mental health?

It’s really tough to be going through hard stuff with a child or youth who is struggling with their mental health and they end up in crisis – and we want to help. 

We know what it’s like because we’ve been there.  

Help for the Hard Times workshops are hosted online and facilitated by parents with lived experience. 


“Hearing from other parents who have navigated these challenges themselves, was a real gift. The information was practical, but it also seemed more believable because it came from experienced parents. I wanted to BELIEVE that things would be OK, and that I will find a way to support my daughter. The workshop gave me this belief.”


Topics include: 

– How to support a safety plan at home
– How to take care of yourself and family after a crisis
– How to find the resources you need

The workshop is free and offered monthly to families living in BC. Registration required.
