with Parent Coach Sarah MacKay Lynch


There are  so many good books out there on mental health.  But do you feel like you don't have enough time to read and really absorb them?

Family Sanity is almost 9 years old.  We have helped hundreds of families who have teens and young adults coping with mental illness.  The non-profit organization is run by a very small staff of parent volunteers.  We'd love to be able to expand our services, but our resources are limited.  

As you may already know, our fundraising efforts at this point have mainly come from the sales of artwork created by Lisa Scimens, our founder ( We are very grateful to a few very generous folks who have provided additional funding and we'd like to increase those funding sources.
