PARENT RESILIENCE PROGRAM
NEW Parent Support Program Coming January 2021: Perinatal Education Resilience Collaborative (PERC)
It can be hard and time-intensive to find support that’s the right fit for you and your family. And there is more than one way to improve emotional wellness on the rollercoaster of parenthood. We also know that mental health therapy is one option, but often it’s not the first, or even on the table, for many families.

Is this the right program for you?
A Parent Specialist can work with you for as long as needed in order to assure that you feel confident in your next steps towards mental wellbeing. They can meet multiple times a week or just to touch base and debrief how you’re doing. Our Specialists are proficient in web-based support, texting and can be flexible, talking to you on the phone while you’re taking a walk or riding the bus to your therapy appointment. This support will look very different parent to parent and is adaptable as your needs change!
Due to COVID-19 we are offering only remote services at the moment with texting, phone calls, and web-based connection. We look forward to being able to expand our services in time.
If you are in the process of trying to be a parent, pregnant, or parenting and living in King County our local Parent Resilience Specialists are available for you to help make those baby steps strides with confidence. To get more information call our Warm Line and ask for info about PERC.
