Supporting Families functions as a partnership between various community organizations in Richmond. Together, we provide services and support for children and youth affected by parental mental illness and addictions.
In the mid-2000’s, a group of health care, not-for-profit and social service providers gathered in Richmond to discuss and hold a series of community consultations about gaps in services. A clear theme emerged: there was an unmet need for services to support children, youth and families affected by parental mental illness or substance use – especially among children and youth who were not themselves affected by a mental illness or substance use disorder and therefore not able to connect to many existing supports. Thus, this program was born!
