Join Us…… Parent Support Group Meeting – Wednesday, June 7 (7-9 p.m.) Family Futures Resource Network — Millhurst Branch 5710 19A Ave., south of Mill Woods Town Centre — Click here for Google Maps One recurring bit of feedback we get from some of our members is regarding the accessibility of our meetings. We have taken that to heart, and in the interest of reaching people who may not have been able to get to the Misericordia, we are hosting this month’s meeting at an alternate location on the south side. We’re pleased to continue our partnership with Family Futures Resource Network, who will be hosting us for our parent support group meeting on June 7. Family Futures Resource Network works to provide valuable resources and programs for individuals, parents, and families. They offer a variety of programs as well, including the Triple P Parenting. Check out their Spring Program Guide for more on what they offer. Our monthly parent support group meeting is a time for meaningful dialogue and to share deeply about the issues related to ADHD that affect your lives and the lives of your children. Whether it’s a chance to discuss struggles with school or the diagnostic/treatment process, or an opportunity to share successes your kids have had, or strides you’ve made as a family, we want to hear about your experiences. This is a roundtable discussion, in a welcoming, non-judgmental setting. Everyone will get a chance, if they choose, to offer a topic or raise an issue in the discussion. Come share your experiences with other parents of ADHD children. See you there!
