Working with community partners, our storytelling has been developed to increase awareness, understanding and decrease stigma, giving families, schools and caregivers the tools to create a safe environment to ask questions and start a discussion.
Here are the proud members of our community who believe strongly in the philosophy of all of us working together.
The “MI friends” program provides children with a comfort toy, while connecting families to an online video/ activity program, giving parents strategies, tools, resources, and suggestions on how to support their child as they learn to self-regulate. Thanks to these incredible community partners, this program is available to families at no cost.
