The Idaho Federation of Families for Children’s Mental Health exists in order to provide education, advocacy, and support for families with children who have emotional, behavioral and mental health needs. Through our SAMHSA funded Statewide Family Network grant, we assist parents and families through involvement with the state legislature, regional advisory groups, planning councils, and committees.  Through our contract with the state of Idaho and partnership with Children’s mental Health, we offer support and education opportunities for parents, youth, and other family members throughout the state designed to increase access to services and to strengthen the voice of families within the mental health system.
