Parents Forum invites individual parents and community leaders to create local chapters and requests inquiries by June 1, Global Day of Parents.
Parents Forum offers help in meeting the serious and widely reported mental health crisis that the pandemic has created. Parents, along with others in parenting roles, children and teens especially need greater emotional support now. “Peer support can serve a valuable role,” program founder Eve Sullivan said, “complementing professional help for those suffering from the stress and distress caused by COVID.”
Individual parents and community leaders in any sector – government, social services, health care, education, business, faith communities, juvenile justice and corrections – are invited to create a Parents Forum chapter.
Inquiries will be accepted online until June 1st, Global Day of Parents. Parents Forum will select up to ten communities from those applying. Individuals and organizations in urban, rural, suburban and tribal communities are all welcome to apply.
Parents and community leaders selected will be invited to participate in online orientation and training between June 1 and August 1, Respect for Parents Day. Applicants chosen will demonstrate community support to ensure the program’s success and chapters will launch in September 2021.
