Family Education Series

Parents, caregivers, and other family members play an integral role in caring for children and youth experiencing mental health challenges.

Created with our Family Advisory Committee and with feedback from the families we serve, Kinark is launching our free Family Education Series. This series is intended to build on caregivers’ ability to identify, understand, and respond to childhood and adolescent mental health distress.

All sessions will be listed below as they are announced.

Upcoming Events

Parenting Your Anxious Child

Thursday, January 26, 2023 from 6:30 pm to 8 pm (Virtual) – FREE

Kinark is excited to be hosting our first virtual family education opportunity in 2023. Parents and caregivers will receive tips and access to valuable resources from our clinicians that can support with parenting your anxious child. Participants will have an opportunity to ask questions about anxiety in children and youth and have them answered live from our team of clinicians.

Key areas that will be discussed:

  • What is anxiety and why do we get anxious? 
  • When anxiety becomes a problem 
  • How to coach and support a child who is anxious 

Given that attendance is open to families across our service areas, the Kinark team will not be able to provide individualized support during the session. If you are concerned and wish to seek mental health services for your child, you can call our Central Intake line at 1-888-454-6275 to discuss referrals.

Registration for this session is now closed.
