OUR MISSION

CHANGING LIVES BY IMPROVING CHILDREN’S MENTAL HEALTH

Wisconsin Family Ties (WFT) is the only statewide, parent-run organization in Wisconsin working with families that include children with social, emotional or behavioral challenges. We walk beside families to provide emotional support while helping to navigate the complex service and treatment systems with which they are involved .

Do you parent or care for a child?

Do you know what caregivers need?

If so, please consider participating in a study sponsored by the Medical College of Wisconsin and WFT examining how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected caregivers. Dr. Robyn Hardt Schultz, Director of Research and Evaluation at WFT has partnered with MCW to conduct this study. The study will take about twenty minutes by the responses you provide may have a lasting impact on improving interventions and available treatments.
