FamilySmart offers Parent Peer Support to all BC parents & caregivers at the Kelty Mental Health Resource Centre through a collaboration with BC Children’s Hospital.
Diane is a mom to two young adults. She was drawn to this work because she wanted to come alongside parents that are in situations similar to where she found herself while raising her kids. She values being able to support other parents when they are vulnerable and going through difficult situations.
Kelly is a Mum of “two of the best girls ever”. She knows from her own lived experiences that untangling the web of mental health services available can be overwhelming and she’s glad to be able to help others do just that. She values helping others to feel heard and to know what their options are.
Melina has been a parent peer support worker since 2019. She values being able to come alongside families in whatever way they need so they feel less isolated in the challenges they face, whether this is offering guidance for how to navigate services or offering empathetic and non judgmental space.
