Connect Parent Group
Canadian Mental Health Association’s Family Solutions Program is offering a group for parents and caregivers.
What is Connect?
Connect is a 10-week program to support parents of pre-teens and teens. Parents meet in small groups (10-16) with two trained group leaders for 1.5 hours each week.
Each session provides parents with a new perspective on parent-teen relationships and adolescent development. Parents watch role-plays, do exercises and discuss new ways of responding to challenging behaviours and problems. Parents receive handouts following each session with key points to remember.
We understand that each child and each parent is different, and change is part of development. Rather than teach only one way of parenting, we help parents see choices that support healthy relationships, while setting limits and helping their teen move forward.
Connect is designed for parents of teens just like you. It addresses changes that occur between parents and teens and helps them keep their relationship strong and positive. Connect is for all parents—it helps protect teens as they move forward in their journey to adulthood.
