The National Federation works to develop and implement policies, legislation, funding mechanisms, and service systems that utilize the strengths of families. Its emphasis on advocacy offers families a voice in the formation of national policy, services and supports for children with mental health needs and their families.
Members of the National Federation come from all walks of life. Emotional, behavioral or mental health needs cut across all income, educational, geographical, racial, ethnic, and religious groups. Needs are found among single parents and two-parent families and in birth, adoptive, and foster families.
Resources found on the website include: Conference Information, links to Resources and Materials, information on the National Certification for Peer Support, on Advocacy and Legislation and Membership Options.
