CAREGIVER WAITLIST SUPPORT PROGRAM
Our caregiver waitlist program recognizes that families on the PRI waitlist – which can be months long – need immediate support. In response, Pine River offers a six-week program in which participants gather to learn PRI’s developmental model, coping tools, and interventions for caregivers with a child who has mental health and/or addictive behaviour challenges.
This training is specifically for families who have already been accepted to PRI’s live-in treatment program and are on the waitlist. The program is online, weekly. During these sessions, families will connect with other caregivers while learning about adolescent development, how to build empathy and connect with their teens, and how to stay regulated in the face of crisis.
