Grants to Wisconsin public agencies and non-profits for information, education, support, and advocacy for families of children with emotional, behavioral, and substance abuse issues. January 6 is the deadline to submit and optional letter of intent to apply; a proposers conference will be held on January 18, and January 20 is the deadline to submit questions.
The scope of this project is to provide a sustained statewide infrastructure for the provision of information, education, support and advocacy for youth and their families. The provision of this infrastructure will lead to an increased level of youth and family involvement where youth and families are recognized as an essential part and actively involved in the decision making process regarding assessment, planning, and monitoring of services for their children.
In addition, there will be increased involvement of youth and families in policy advisory committees at both the local and State levels. It is anticipated that a result of this participation will be improved service infrastructure, effectiveness, consumer and family satisfaction, individual and agency outcomes, and reduce barriers such as stigma.
The Parent Support Services delivered under this GRFP will:
• Develop, provide, and maintain a statewide MH/SA family support service that provides information to youth, families, and anyone acting on their behalf.
• Develop, provide, and maintain a statewide MH/SA family support service that provides training to children, youth, families, and anyone acting on their behalf regarding the fundamentals of mental illness, co-occurring substance use disorders, resiliency, and recovery.
• Develop, provide, and maintain a statewide MH/SA family support service that provides advocacy and support on a statewide, local, and individual level.
