It’s tough growing up around mental illness
fameKids is a very unique and special program for children that builds upon the child’s existing knowledge and resiliency skills. It is a support program designed specifically for children from 7-12 years of age who have a family member with a mental illness.
fameKids offers a dual model of service delivery. The first is an 8 week after school support program. This pre-registered, multi-modal psycho-educational group helps children to understand their parents’ mental illness and learn to take care of themselves. The second model is One to One support where children receive individualized support and can work to ensure a continuum of care after the fameKids program is completed. One to One can provide children with individual tools and coping skills that work just for them.
