NAMI Family Support Group-FREE

Parent Coordinators can help families in Dakota County understand and navigate the children's mental health system by providing one-on-one parent-to-parent support. A Parent Coordinator can meet with parents in person to identify services and supports in the community. We will encourage and guide parents to build a strong support network for themselves. We are available to coordinate, attend meetings and partner with providers and educators. Our goal is to ensure that families have the support and tolls they deserve to enable their child to be as successful as possible.

Contact NAMI Minnesota at (651) 645-2948 ext. 133 or parent.resources@namimn.org to connect to a Parent Coordinator for support, help and hope.
