Children's Rights and Parent Resilience
Come join Parents and Caregivers for Wellness (PC4W) at the CMHACY Conference for this FREE event for parents/caregivers who have children with mental health needs. The first workshop from 8:30-10:30am is called Navigating the Rights of Children. This workshop discusses the major ways in which a parent might interact with the mental health system and the various rights their children have. Children have legal entitlements for mental health services, these various entitlements are discussed, as well as where those services tend to be provided: in home, at school, and in a treatment program. The workshop will differentiate between confidentiality and privilege and explain the ways in which a proper disclosure of mental health information may occur. The procedure around psychotropic medication will be discussed, including the process for youth involved in the court system or for youth who are seeking to refuse medication. Tips on examining a child’s treatment plan and strategies on how to advocate for mental health services will be discussed. The second workshop from 10:45-12pm is called Parent Resilience. This workshop will be a roundtable discussion about building resilience and how parents constructively cope with and bounce back from challenging situations. Breakfast is free and transportation stipends will be provided for those who carpool. We will also be giving out some great gifts. Parents are also encouraged to stay for the 2pm opening of the Conference, which will begin with a presentation from Raul Almazar, Senior Public Health Advisor, NASMHPD's Center for Innovations in Trauma- Informed Approaches, on Helping People Heal in the Communities. The next presentation starts at 3:30 and is a parent and youth panel that represent the thoughts and ideas of both youth and parents on gaps in service during childhood life transitions. The day will end at 5pm. Contact Melissa Hannah @ 8053841555 for more information.
