PEG in McHenry and Algonquin

PEG (Parent Empowerment Group), operating under the auspices of the McHenry County CARE/Family Council (a program of the McHenry County Mental Health Board), now meets in McHenry and in Algonquin.

Are you the parent/caregiver of a child or youth with significant needs due to a mental health diagnosis, medications, an IEP, inappropriate behavior or defiance issues?

Do you feel alone or in need of support?

Do you want a safe place to discuss the challenges of parenting your "special" child?

Join one (or both? any chance of nightly??? (who, me? stressed today?) of these groups for parents/caregivers. Learn new skills, share information and become empowered. Everyone is welcome.

Look out, world; here we come!!!
