New Information Bulletin: Supporting Children of Parents with Mental Illness in the Classroom



As a result of feedback that we have been receiving about the latest newsletter formats, we have moved towards providing online information bulletins that round up resources and mental health information from various sources including organizations who are a part of the B.C. Partners for Mental Health and Addictions Information. This is a group of non-profit agencies that provide good-quality information to help individuals and families maintain or improve their mental well-being. The BC Partners members are AnxietyBC, BC Schizophrenia Society, Canadian Institute for Substance Use Research, Canadian Mental Health Association’s BC Division, Insitute of Families for Child and Youth Mental Health, Jessie’s Legacy eating disorders prevention and awareness (a Family Services of the North Shore program) and Mood Disorders Association of BC (a branch of Lookout Housing and Health Society). The BC Partners are funded by BC Mental Health and Substance Use Services, an agency of the Provincial Health Services Authority. For more information, visit

We will be sending a brief summary alerting subscribers when a new information bulletin is posted.

Our latest information bulletin is entitled, Supporting Children of Parents with Mental Illness in the Classroom. This resource is great for educators, family members and friends as they look for ways to support children and youth they know who have a parent with mental illness. Readers will find a list of peer support groups and workshops, films, curriculum and books to help children and youth get the support they need as they work to understand their situation and build skills in resiliency and coping.
