Families Share

About The Program

Nevada PEP understands that children and youth with disabilities including those with mental health needs and their families face challenges that the pandemic has only heightened. More needs to be done to strengthen families to achieve home, community and school success.  

In keeping with our Mission to increase opportunities through education, encouragement, and empowerment activities, we proudly introduce Families SHARE – Solutions for Hope and Resiliency Exchange.  Families SHARE is an interactive program providing tools for families and youth to reduce stress, stay hopeful, and build resilience. 

Information and resources are updated regularly.  Be sure to check back as the Families SHARE program grows. 

Reduce Stress

Stress is the body’s natural response to a challenge or demand, but it can leave us feeling overwhelmed.  Here, you’ll find tips, tools, and resources to help you and your family remain calm and keep unwanted stress at bay.

Stay Hopeful

Hope is a significant protective factor in tackling feelings of helplessness.  When we stay hopeful, our happiness increases, and our quality of life improves.  Look here for activities, strategies, and ideas to help you and your family stay hopeful.

Build Resilience

Resilience helps us rebound from setbacks, resist unhealthy coping mechanisms, and adapt to life’s trials.  Building resilience won’t make problems go away, but it will help us manage challenges and improve mental health.  This is the place for apps, sites, and exercises to help you and your family build resilience.
