During the month of June, with your input and participation, we’d like to honor and support dads. Every week in June we will feature a different dad. We will hear in their own words what they want to share and what being a dad means to them.
Dads, we want to know what you’re thinking. But we also want to hear from the families of dads. Is there something you would like us to know about your dad? Or would you like to celebrate something special about a dad you know? Then we want to talk to you.
Please send in your ideas and suggestions on how we can support dads and their families. If you’re a dad or know a dad who would like to do an interview or blog post, reach out to Dominic DeLeo by email, phone (601-355-0915) or Facebook message, and he’ll reach back out to you.
We also hope dads and everyone else who cares about children will join us for several events throughout the month of June.
While it isn’t officially June yet, this Friday, May 29th at 1 PM we’d like to invite dads and everyone else to register for the last of our May #ApartButNotAlone webinar series, titled Supporting the Social/Emotional Health of Young Children, presented by Nikki Flippins. Just click on the link to register.
Our own Henry Moore will present at the NAMI virtual conference during the week of June 8-12 about Supporting and Advocating with Families of Young Children. We invite all of you to attend.
The following week is the virtual Disability Megaconference (June 17-18). Joy Hogge and Polly Tribble of Disability Rights MS will present on the ADA, Olmstead and Mental Health Reform (click to register). One of our partners, Dr. Dustin Sarver at CHAMP (Child Access to Mental Health and Psychiatry) will also present on behavioral health care with young children at this virtual conference.
On June 23-24th, we invite you to join us for the National Council for Behavioral Health’s virtual Hill Day at Home. This is a great opportunity to strengthen our advocacy skills and learn about federal mental health policy and is usually only open to those who can travel to Washington D.C.
We are looking forward to hearing about and learning from dads. We are also looking forward to virtually seeing all of you throughout the month of June.
