Ashley, Parent Participant

Range parents has helped support and accept me with my mental health diagnosis.  It has also helped keep me grounded and keep me safe.  Lana is one of the instructors for the groups I am in and she is absolutely amazing.  She actually puts in the time and effort to find resources and help people who really need it.  She is very supportive and non judgmental which has helped me feel safe in the groups that she runs!

Terran, Parent Participant

It's really nice to have a group of other parents you can relate with who are at the same stage in their lives as you are.

Tracy, Parent Participant

The facilitators are truly amazing and inspiring! They are real parents who have been through real things! They have inspired me to become a facilitator as well and have become my support network that I never knew I needed! Thank you Range Parents!
