PAT Community Partnerships

PAT Program Community Partnerships

PEPS partners with multiple local community-based organizations to offer our Program for Parents of Adolescents and Teens (PAT) to better serve specific communities.

In partnership with Mercer Island Healthy Youth Initiative (MIHYI) and City of Mercer Island Youth and Family Services we offer virtual PAT Groups for parents of adolescents and teens families living on Mercer Island.  

For Spanish-speaking families, we are partnering with ChildStrive and Sistema Escolar USA  to offer PAT Groups in Spanish.

  • To participate in a PAT Group for Spanish-speaking families, please contact:
  • ChildStrive for in-person groups — Please text message Catalina Angel at (425) 535-5734 
  • Sistema Escolar USA for virtual groups — Please email Liliana Medina at

We also encourage families to also join programs offered through Changes Parent Support Network (CPSN). CPSN is a structured, peer-led program that provides support to parents struggling with children who are engaging in oppositional and self-destructive behaviors.
