Voices for Virginia’s Children and its Campaign for Children’s Mental Health are pleased to be partnering with NAMI Virginia‘s Virginia Family Network to host a training for families of children with mental health needs on crisis planning. We hear often from parents and other family members that they did not know what to do when a child’s condition deteriorated to the point of crisis. Parents, siblings and everyone in the household can be affected, so it helps to plan ahead. We’ll have a panel of speakers to address how to avoid a crisis if at all possible, how to plan in case there is one, and what resources are available in the Richmond area.
Here are the details:
