About the Event

This training will include presentation, video, parent speaker panel, group discussion, and opportunity for role play. 


Children who have a caregiver with mental illness:

· have a higher risk for developing mental illnesses than other children

· have  significantly higher rates of trauma exposure and psychosocial problems

Children of parents who had four or more Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) are four times more likely to have mental health problems.

Most parents/caregivers have experienced increased stress during the COVID pandemic. Among parents who reported high levels of anxiety, higher levels of COVID-19-related family stress were significantly associated with higher child internalizing and externalizing problems. RCCMHC families report high ACE scores, trauma histories, and high levels of daily, toxic stress. Over 90% of our parents self-report mental illness of their own.
