If and when you are comfortable to talk, share your own feelings and experiences with the group. Find a common ground and grow new supportive relationships.

The availability of our Parent Support Group has been around for quite some time. This is our debut on Meetup.com to try to reach and help even more families. All parents attending the group, therefore, will not be visible as RSVPs. We have people who respond through our email listserve and by phone or public flyers.
We are a support group for parents who are overwhelmed or puzzled by their child's mental health, behavioral health, or emotional health challenges. Parents often join or group because they are feeling overwhelmed and isolated - like they are the only family dealing with such challenges. Parents find great comfort in our confidential small group discussions. The group is FREE and we offer free bottled water and snacks. The group meets at Wayside Youth & Family Support Network on 118 Central Street in Waltham, MA. Our atmosphere is welcoming, comfortable, and very relaxed.
