Synopsis: Issues around raising a child with behavioral health involvement are easily understood by other parents making that same journey, but can be challenging for system professionals to understand from the perspective of the parent. This can create barriers in integrating parents into the case management model, and using parents as active designers of their own interventions, supports, and services. By teaming the case manager with a peer parent, a model is created that allows the peer to draw the parent into the system of care process through the nature of the peer relationship. The family is then able to more fully utilize the structure created by the case manager. If the family is not infused into the case management process outcomes are affected negatively, no matter how sound a structure the case management team may have built.
