What happens when we care for carers? FamilySmart is an organization out of B.C. that aims to help children and young people by helping those most important in their lives – their parents and caregivers.

FamilySmart works closely with CASA Mental Health, but any family with a child struggling with mental health issues can access their resources. Watch FamilySmart CEO and founder Keli Anderson explain the importance of supporting the whole family.
