Wisconsin Family Ties logo“Finally someone gets it!”  That’s the phrase often heard by Parent Peer Specialists from Wisconsin Family Ties, which helps families with children who have mental health problems.  The Parent Peer Specialists work one-on-one with families, whether it’s regarding school issues, social services, or mental health services.

Parent Peer Specialists listen sensitively, help a parent see things from a different perspective, and advocate as needed for the family.

After working with Wisconsin Family Ties, one parent exclaimed, “I feel like I can breathe again just knowing that someone understands.”
