The Texas Family Voice Network is where journeys collide and unite to provide one common voice to promote successful outcomes for children’s mental health.
Being a family leader in my community has afforded me the opportunity for my voice to be heard in many different ways. This role has allowed me to be transparent about the struggles and successes that I have experienced on my journey. Through sharing my story, it has also given me the opportunity to offer support and hope to other families. Lastly, I am able to provide honest feedback to agencies that serve families. All of these things, in my opinion, make family leaders an integral part of bringing about change within our communities.
There was a time that I had become so convinced that the system knew what was best for my children and me, I had forgotten that my children and I were really the experts. With a lot of hard work and commitment we have experienced systems and individual change. Keep the Hope alive.
