FYI Parent Support Groups

What are the FYI Parent Support Groups?

The Parents Support Groups are a virtual space for parents/caregivers to come together to provide peer emotional support to one another. Groups are established around parent interests and topics parents bring up on the Family Support Line. A FYIdaho staff is always present to add structure to the conversation, but parents/caregivers provide the topics and resources they would like to share. Parents/caregivers can expect to meet others who share similar experiences and to find comfort in meeting others who understand their challenging journey.

When and Where We meet:

Throughout the month FYIdaho holds a variety of groups online. Topics are added as
parents voice the need. Current groups are as follows:

    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.
