Parent Partner Coalition


Parent Partner Coalition

Parent Partners are the key to family-focused, family-driven services and work to directly engage and support families, convey information on how to effectively navigate systems and work collaboratively with community partners. Parent Partners help parents and families remain engaged and informed in order to meet the individual needs of their child or youth. 

Recognizing that collective life experience would yield dramatic results toward system change, UACF formed the Parent Partner Coalition (PPC) to serve the networking and advocacy needs of Parent Partners and Family Advocates working in the public mental health care systems. The PPC supports and promotes the work of Parent Partners across the state through networking, training, and education.
