Sibshops Schedule

The second series of Sibshops, a support group for brothers and sister of children with special needs or mental health needs hosted by Families Connected, will take place on Saturday, November 15, 2014, February 21, 2015, and on May 16, 2015.  The events will take place at Child Focus Training Center, 551 Old State Route 74, Mt Carmel.

Sibshops acknowledge that being the brother or sister of a person with special needs, including mental health needs, is for some a good thing, others a not-so-good thing, and for many, somewhere in-between. They reflect a belief that brothers and sisters have much to offer one another — if they are given a chance. Sibshops are a spirited mix of new games designed to be unique, off-beat, and appealing to a wide ability range, new friends, and discussion activities. They give the “typical” sibs an opportunity to work through issues they may have regarding their family member with a disability.  To register for Sibshops, click here or call 513-732-5034.  For more information on SibShops, click here.

Sibshops are available in Clermont County thanks to Clermont FAST TRAC, a system of care initiative of the Clermont County Mental Health & Recovery Board, funded by a grant from the United States Department of Health and Human Services, Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.
