About Wisconsin Family Ties

Wisconsin Family Ties started with humble beginnings through a meeting of support groups made up of like-minded families from around the state of Wisconsin who were focused on addressing and improving the outlook for their children’s mental health. Three decades later, WFT has grown into the largest parent-run organization of its kind in the state. Our experiences as parents make us uniquely qualified to support families–without judgment–because we have been there too.  With your help, we will continue our mission and grow for years to come.

Help Wisconsin Family Ties Improve Outcomes for Wisconsin families by Participating in This Important Study: 

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 Wisconsin Family Ties (WFT), examining how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected caregivers. Dr. Robyn F. Hardt Schultz, Director of Research and Evaluation at WFT, has partnered with the College to conduct this study. The survey will take about 20 minutes and is open until April 1, 2021. The responses you provide may have a lasting impact on improving interventions and available treatments.
