Every month, FamilySmart hosts online events for parents and caregivers who are parenting a child or youth with a mental health and/or substance use challenge called In the Know. FamilySmart Parent Peer Support Workers and parents from across BC watch a video and share experiences and strategies that help in the hard moments and focus on strengthening their understanding and connection with their kids.

Below, find popular videos from past In the Know events.
