Through this powerful new initiative UACF seeks to empower
parents to become informed leaders and advocates for the mental
well-being of their children.
The Parents Rights Movement is a social justice movement whose
members are primarily interested in issues affecting the mental,
social, physical and spiritual well-being of all children.
Parents, better than any other social unit, can and should
increase awareness of the mental health needs of children and
change the way our communities respond to those needs. Mental
health, an essential part of children’s overall health, has a
complex interactive relationship with their physical health and
their ability to succeed in school, at work and in society.
Parent Leadership Empowerment is the essence of EPIC’s core
values and expected outcomes.
UACF has developed a 12 Point
Parent Empowerment Program designed to strengthen the voice of
parents and provide them with transformational tools to
re-shape the mental healthcare system on behalf of their
children. We are focused on building the capacity of parents and
families through training, technical assistance, and direct peer
to peer support through through the following initiatives:
