peer-run family support
The Child and Family Support Program (CFSP) is a peer-run program offering a variety of services including support, advocacy, referrals, and education to those who have a young family member living with a mental illness. Advocates working in the program have a child or family member diagnosed with a mental illness. Youth peer advocates provide support to teens and transition-age young adults (see Youth Peer Advocates Program). Family and youth peer advocates also work at BryLin Hospital and the Erie County Medical Center providing support.
