Are you a family leader with lived experience as a primary caregiver of a child, youth or young adult with mental health or substance use need who is working in a role that fosters and supports family engagement in agency practice and policy decisions? Are you interested in connecting with other family leaders working in similar roles to expand and enhance your skills and knowledge? Whether you are new to your role or you have been in the family movement for many years, the Family Exchange is a peer networking group to share experiences, innovative and effective practices, skills and knowledge, solution to barriers and challenges, and key information supporting your role as family leaders.
The group will be facilitated by experienced family leaders from the Family-Run Executive Director Leadership Association (FREDLA) who will foster peer connections, access to resources and technical assistance, and support family leaders to further family engagement within their agency, community or state. The group will meet monthly at 12:00 pm PST / 3:00 pm ET on the last Wednesday of every month. **No session will be held in November due to the holiday.
