Family Support (Back to top)

We know there are many challenges to raising a child with mental health needs. We also know that one of the best sources of support is often other families who have been there.

At the Resource Center, experienced parents of children with mental health needs offer their knowledge and support through our Family Navigator program. Navigators are available for one-on-one support, and also offer periodic education and training on a variety of topics, such as: building resilient families; effective communication skills; natural supports for families; supports and services in Virginia; self-care; and peer support.

Are you an experienced parent, grandparent or guardian of a child who has received mental health services? We are currently recruiting volunteers to join our team of family navigators. 

For more information, contact the Resource Center at (804) 828-9897.

 

PCP Referral Assistance and Pediatric Consultation (Back to top)

The Resource Center is working with pediatric primary care providers (PCPs) in the City of Richmond as part of a pilot project to offer referral assistance to families in need of specialty mental health services.

Families who are referred to the Center by a physician are screened by Resource Center staff and connected with mental health specialists in the community who can best meet their needs. The program also offers consultation and behavioral health education to pediatricians to increase their capacity to care for their patients with mental health problems.
