We know how challenging it can be to parent a child or teen with a mental illness. Our unique approach was developed by CMHRC mental health professionals, parents, and adult patients who know first hand the lived experience of surviving and thriving with mental illness.


Don’t Wait To Get Help


CMHRC experts teach how to use the Palliative Parenting concepts during:
  • 8 sessions,
  • 90 minutes each,
  • Meet weekly in live, face-to-face, videoconference group sessions.
In just a few short weeks you’ll be equipped to:
  • Ease symptoms,
  • Reduce outbursts, and
  • Improve quality of life for you and your children.

Participation Fees


1 or 2 parents (same child): $399

$80 ($10 per session)


Program fees have been reduced thanks to

a generous grant from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation. 



Connect With A Community

Each week CMHRC instructors provide educational material, facilitate discussion, and review strategies and techniques that can be applied immediately. Each group meeting focuses on different elements of Palliative Parenting including acceptance, respect, and community. 
Participants learn through interactions with both experts and classmates. Everyone can ask questions, share experiences, learn from one another, and feel the support of a community of parents and caregivers facing the same challenges
