Unmasking Children's Mental Health
Childhood mental disorders affect boys and girls of all ages, ethnic/racial backgrounds, and living in all regions of the United States. According to the CDC, 1 in 5 children experiences a mental disorder in a given year. Georgia Parent Support Network is working hard to ensure that Georgia families have access to care, education and a voice in the process of change.
Our Work To Build A Strong Community
GPSN is a 501(c)(3) non-profit agency, and is dedicated to providing services, support, education and advocacy for children and youth with mental illness, emotional disturbances and behavioral differences. Since 1989, GPSN has been a voice for children and adolescents who do not have a voice, advocating for mental health reforms in the legislature; we provide Family Support Partners, help youth who are transitioning out of child and adolescent mental health services to become independent instead of homeless; and we support the statewide Youth M.O.V.E. Georgia chapter that empowers young adults to become active participants in mental health advocacy and peer support.
