The L.E.E.P. Project provides self-help and mutual support for families of children and youth with serious emotional disturbances or mental health challenges. This service increases the knowledge, skills, and confidence of parents and family members in parenting their child/youth.

variety of ways, including: 
  • Identified methods and approaches commonly used to identify children/youth with behavioral, conduct or emotional disorders
