Annotation

The majority of parent peer support is provided to mothers who are often the primary person in the family to navigate systems of care for their children. Fathers also have a critical role in behavioral health, and for this reason the Family Leaders Learning Community (LC) is hosting a webinar to highlight the needs of fathers and unique outreach programs to support fathers. Join us to hear about two exemplary programs: Washington State Dad's Move describes themselves as Dadvocates, mentoring others, with voices of experience. Allegheny Family Network's program for dads, Fathers Involved Now (FIN), assists fathers in understanding the importance of becoming financially and emotionally involved in the daily rearing of their children.
