Parent Mentor Training

The Family Center for Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs invites you to a Virtual Parent Mentor Training.

Remember when your child was newly diagnosed?
Would it have helped to have someone to talk with who has “been there”?
Are you interested in supporting other parents?
In our interactive Parent Mentor Training learn from a fellow parent about:

Parent-to-Parent Support
Communication Skills
Listening Techniques
Community Resources
The Training will take place these dates and times:

Tuesday January 12th: 9am-11:30am

Wednesday January 13th: 9am-11:30am

Thursday January 14th: 9am-12pm

If you are a parent, caregiver, or guardian of a child/youth with special health care needs and would like to make a difference in the lives of others, please join us for this opportunity to become a trained Parent Mentor.

This training is open to all families who have a child with a medical, physical, developmental, behavioral, or emotional condition. As a trained Parent Mentor, you will become a part of our statewide network of volunteer parents supporting one another, sharing resources, and helping to navigate various systems.

**Participants will be given a $50 gift card and a Medical Care Binder**

If you have any questions prior to the day of training, please call the Family Phone Line: 800-359-3722 or email: adkinsd@michigan.gov
