We are parents and caregivers of children with diagnosed mental health conditions in Hennepin County.
What Do We Do?
We play an important role in helping Hennepin County providers, educators and policymakers improve mental health services for children.
We provide opportunities for parents to network, give and gain support, learn, advocate, and lead:
- Monthly support group meetings
- Monthly planning meetings
- Participation on school, government and provider work groups
- Opportunities to attend mental health workshops and conferences
All families of children with mental health needs in Hennepin County have the support and resources to advocate and create a united voice in decision-making processes at all levels of the children’s mental health systems of care.
To prepare PCLG members to become leaders in policy-making, advocacy, education, and support in order to empower Hennepin County families and create community awareness of children’s mental health.
The PCLG is part of the Hennepin County Children’s Mental Health Collaborative, with members from the county, school districts, providers and families working together to support community efforts to improve mental health services for children and families.
