Image
"Families are big, small, extended, nuclear, blended, and multi-generational, with one parent, two parents, and grandparents. We live under one roof or many. A family can be as temporary as a few weeks, as permanent as forever. We become part of a family by birth, fostering, adoption, marriage, or from a desire for mutual support. Together, our families create our neighborhoods and communities."
Family Systems Theory

If it is ABOUT families, it must be WITH families… child, youth, and young adult mental health is about families.
