Who We Are
Pleo was created by parents, for parents.
We know first hand that parents play a significant role in their child’s outcomes and research supports this. We recognize that parents can’t and need not do it alone. We understand the challenges and the stressors on families. And we believe that families facing mental health challenges can flourish.
Our Vision is that families facing mental health challenges can flourish, stigma-free, with the support and services they need.
Our Mission is to foster positive outcomes for families with children to age 25 facing mental health challenges by providing family peer support and by amplifying the family voice for system change.
It is worth $1,000,000 to connect with people who really understand because they have been there too. It helped to have a safe space to discuss intense topics, not being judged or assessed or tested, just being heard with compassion, just being accompanied while we go through it.
