Parents Forever & Higher Ground

Johnson County Mental Health Center offers family education programs with strategies to help co-parents navigate court processes and create a positive environment for their children throughout the process of separation and divorce.
 

These programs provide education about the experience of children going through a separation/divorce, conflict resolution, co-parenting tips, family court processes, and resources. These education programs may be court-mandated, but are also open to the community.

Family Education

Johnson County Mental Health Center offers family education programs with strategies to help caregivers create a positive environment for their children and information about community services/supports available.

These programs provide education on parenting and family skills, children's life skills, conflict resolution, and co-parenting tips. These education programs are open to caregivers or may be court-mandated.

Virtual training events require your attendance, full attention, and participation. Children should not be with your during your class. You must be on camera during your class. You should not participate in activities that would not be permitted during an in-person class (i.e. driving, sleeping, salon visits, etc.). If the virtual class expectations are not met, you will not receive credit for attending class.

We utilize multiple locations in Olathe, KS for our in-person classes. The specific location is provided to registered participants via email a few days prior to class. Please do NOT assume your class is being held at one of our JCMHC locations. Zoom links are also provided via email a few days prior to class. If you have not received the location/Zoom information within 48 hours of your class, check your spam/junk folder and/or phone 913-715-7880.

Reach out to Prevention and Community Relations at 913-715-7880 or MNH-Familyed@jocogov.org.
