Parent Education

What types of education do we provide parents?

Throughout the year we hold educational events on the YES system of care and parenting youth with mental health challenges. Topics vary according to parent’s expressed needs. If you have an idea for an event, please let us know!

When are the events?

We try and sprinkle educational opportunities throughout the year. The best place to keep up to date with what we are offering are our monthly newsletter (join at the bottom of the page) or our events calendar. Here are a few places you might learn about prior events:

  • Youth MOVE Social Support
    5:00 PM-6:30 PM
    October 12, 2022

    Youth MOVE Social Support is a peer-led by a trained teen leader with support and supervision from a Families and Youth of Idaho staff member. This wellness group is aimed towards high schoolers who identify as neurodivergent, as well as other teens who would benefit from the group. Teens will have opportunities to practice self advocacy, discuss mental health, and form positive social connections. Group meetings will involve lessons, discussions, and educational activities as well as recreation and games. We intend to form a tight-knit community of friends who can help each other through the transitions of adolescence and young adulthood.

    This group meets at the Boise Brick House which is located at the Idaho Federation of Families office at 704 N 7th Street Boise ID, 83702. Snacks and drinks will be provided and masks must be worn inside unless actively eating or drinking.

    If you are interested in the group, contact Madeline Titelbaum at mtitelbaum@idahofederation.org.
