Program Description: The Children's Support and Parenting Program (CSPP) is a prevention program serving a wide range of families from different backgrounds whose stressors make children more vulnerable to developing behavioral health problems. Program services focus on families that have a common parental history of serious substance abuse and/or mental illness; families whose family member's actual or potential involvement in the juvenile justice system may make they more vulnerable to behavioral health problems; children living with family members who have developmental or physical illnesses/disabilities; children living in families that are impacted by divorce, domestic violence, trauma, unemployment, and/or homelessness; and children of families of active duty military/returning veterans. Families are referred through behavioral health programs, community providers, Family Resource Centers, and schools. A multi-week psycho-educational group series is facilitated with a focus on increasing parenting skills and support, increasing child resiliency, and improving the overall strength of the family. Brief family intervention sessions and referrals to community services are available to all participants. Follow-up sessions are provided to graduates as an opportunity to reunite with other families and refresh their learned skills.
