it takes courage to heal

Parent Support Group

Wednesdays 10:00 – 11:00am

Parenting is hard.

Parenting during a pandemic is harder.

Let’s help each other.

Courage Medicine is offering a free, Zoom-based, parent-support group for families of K-6th grade children to create a safe space to:

Talk with other parents about parenting challenges

  • Connect with others who care
  • Express your fears, frustrations, hopes and joys
  • Share resources, ideas, and what has worked for you
  • Talk about the impact of racism, Covid-19, violence, drugs and other social factors on raising children
  • Explore how to advocate for your child so they receive equal access to quality education, healthcare, enriching activities and opportunities.

At the same time, we will be offering a Zoom class for your children, engaging them in meaningful activities. Children will:

  • Listen to and talk about stories
  • Learn ways to manage feelings
  • Express themselves through art
  • Play interactive games
  • Build new friendships in their community

This is a support group. It will be facilitated by mental health professionals and certified educators, but it is not therapy. The goal is to create a space for parents and guardians to connect with each other, share their own expertise, and help one another.

Meetings will be held weekly on Wednesdays 10:00 – 11:00am
