“Team Up for Your Child,” presented by Diane Bouffard, CPSP, regional parent support coordinator. Getting services for a child with behavioral health needs can be overwhelming. Workshop is designed to help families navigate confusing service systems and work smarter with doctors, schools, agencies, and insurers.

When a child has serious behavioral health issues, you suddenly have a team of professionals in your life who provide a variety of services. This team could include doctors, therapists, health workers and teachers but remember that the coach of this team is you, the parent.

You are the only one who takes care of the whole child. Learn how to identify your child’s strengths and needs, make sense of reports and evaluations, understand your child’s treatment plan, track your child’s progress and translate the Individualized Education Program.

Free to parents, grandparents and guardians who are currently parenting a child with behavioral health needs. Lunch provided.

Space limited to 18 people; preregistration required. Contact Misty Day, 485-4253 or mday@crisisandcounseling.org. Belfast Center, Conference Room, 9 Field St., Belfast.
