Brave Parents Institute

We all have those parenting moments.

The moments where everyone ends up in tears. Where you are afraid to tell anyone because of the judgement you know will follow.

You are not alone. We are in this together.

The Brave Parents Institute is about breaking down the walls of guilt and shame in parenting and building up a community of support and strategy. Come together with fellow Brave Parents to share the wins, the losses and the learning that comes from raising children.

The Brave Parents Institute is a monthly membership program of community guidance from parents and professionals who are in the trenches with you.

Through school assemblies and youth leadership track, workplace wellness initiatives, connection events, and our yearly conference with Bell Let’s Talk, National Hope Talks is moving people from just “hoping” things will get better regarding mental health, and leaving people with hope in the form of a plan for change.
