This focus group meeting is for Mississippi parents and caregivers (a caregiver is someone who is raising a child who is not the the child's parent) of children ages birth to 5 who have social, emotional or developmental challenges. Parents will be asked to share their thoughts about getting help for their children and to compare what happens to them to what happened to families in earlier groups.
Information will be used to help Mississippi Thrive understand the best ways to set up services to be able to help young children and their families. Information will not be shared by name, but a report with findings and possibly representative quotes will be made available, including to participants. All participants who complete the focus group will receive a $25 Walmart gift card. Registration is required and you will be asked for your mailing address during registration so that your gift card can be mailed to you after you finish the group. All focus groups will last one hour.
