This is the first time the conference has been held in the United States, and we are so looking forward to being there. It provides an unprecedented opportunity to learn from researchers, clinicians, policy-makers and other people, like us, with lived awareness.
Saturday, April 26th, is an especially important day for this community of adult children. (Or as MK and DC call it, this "Tribe"). The conference symposium pulls from experts in the fields of social work, psychiatry and policy, to highlight the needs of the children of parental mental illness. With a focus on understanding the impact of being a child and caregiver for a parent. And on spreading the word about the importance of whole-family care when a parent is ill.
If we can help shape a future in which parents and healthcare providers remember to look at the child and recognize the signs of complex trauma, we will be changing the lives of millions.
We have to do a little fundraising to help cover the (high) attendance cost - $425, each. Help us get there! Giving to The CROOKED HOUSE is easier than ever, with our Donate Now secure online payment system. Any increment helps.
