Parents as Agents of Change: Collaboration in Treatment Planning

School-based mental health programs are increasingly being implemented as an affordable, effective, and productive way to provide mental health services to children and adolescents with social, emotional, and behavioral problems. Providers in these programs are in a unique position to work closely with parents to address the needs of children in their program and help to promote good home-school collaboration.

Family Partnership in Children's Services

Agency and clinic practices that include a parent partner in the services provided for families have been reported as an effective way to increase engagement and retention in services. Parent partners serve as peer support to parents by providing information, being a credible source of information, and modeling effective advocacy and collaborative skill. They also support parents to become advocates for their children and often function as bridges between clinicians and families.
