Get involved to help other parents and our communities heal.

When our children struggle, we struggle — and our lives, families and communities can be torn apart.

Together, parents can change the cycle.

We founded OPLM to address the worldwide crisis of teenage substance use and mental health issues by creating an empowered community of parents supporting parents — and extending the help, hope and healing we experience to our communities.

Personal shame hampers our collective potential.

When parents hide their challenges they can feel shame, fear, and confusion. By sharing our stories and seeking honest connection, we can heal together and reduce the number of those suffering in silence. Those who heal can extend their experience to help other families and their communities create authentic and lasting personal and social change.
