Parents’ Lifelines is a non-profit family support organization for parents and caregivers whose children to age 24 are dealing with mental health and/or addiction challenges. We are staffed with parents who also have supported their own children with these challenges – we have travelled this journey. We understand the challenges and the stresses on families but we also know there is hope, recovery is possible and we know first hand that parents and caregivers play a significant role. Children and youth with good family support have better outcomes. Families also need support to be the supporters and advocates their children need. You have arrived at the right place to get that support and to learn more about navigating the mental health and addiction systems. Please explore this website to understand the services we can provide. You don’t need to feel alone.
