Certified Family Support Partners (CFSP) are critical in the Idaho mental health system. These individuals have experienced raising a child with mental illness, navigating multiple child-serving systems, and assisting the child in developing the resiliency needed for recovery. Family Support Partners offer hope and encouragement by sharing their experiences and knowledge.
Certified Family Support Partners provide hope for individuals, families, and communities for families in similar situations by offering:
- Stories of lived experience with other parents/caregivers
- Encouragement and understanding
- Information on accessing resources
- Direct caregiver-to-caregiver support
Effective June 1, 2018, BPA Health is administering the certification process for Peer Support Specialists and Family Support Partners. You may contact BPA Health for additional information.
