Children’s Challenging Behaviors Workshop

Workshop For Parents of Children and Youth with Mental Health Needs

Free six-hour workshop developed as an adaptation of NAMI Basics by our good friends at

  • Provides information to help parents understand typical behaviors versus challenging behaviors that require intervention
  • Learn when and how to seek help, develop parenting strategies, learn the ins and outs of special education and other educational supports, and discover community resources available to families and youth
  • Gain an understanding of mental wellness and mental health conditions in children and develop strategies to support your child
  • Taught by parents who have been on similar journeys and can provide firsthand experience and knowledge
  • Provides attendees with a comprehensive manual full of relevant resources and information all in one place

There is no cost to attend, but registration is required. Child care stipends are available.
