Therapy Notes for Families

Staying organized with your child's needs - a planner to keep you on track!

Created by Jenn T. Grace & Andrea Grace


Why you need this...

This book is solving the needs of families who are raising children with complex mental health needs, who themselves don’t have the mental bandwidth to keep track of it all without a little bit of organizational assistance.

If you are raising a child with any level of mental health related needs you likely understand, all too well, how much effort goes into keeping track of the many ongoing therapy appointments.

Therapy Notes for Families

"Strength grows in the moments when you think you can't go on but you keep going anyway."

Why we created this...

The creators of this book designed it to solve a personal need. After multiple years of weekly therapy and monthly psychiatry appointments, the collection and tracking of important information became too scattered to be helpful.

This book is broken into two parts - the first is helping you track all of your important information related to your child. This includes the contact information of all medical parties involved, such as the pediatrician, psychiatrist, neuropsychologist and therapist. 

As well as the contact information for school staff, such as the principal, school psychologist, school social worker, classroom teacher, special education teacher and school nurse - among others.

You may also be intimately aware of how many times new clinicians ask you background information on your child, like known complications with pregnancy or milestones such as crawling, walking and talking. This is information that regardless how many times the book's creators were asked, they had to think about it, rather than having the information at the ready. 

The other component to the first part of this book is space to write down medication history. After the doctors lost the book creator’s medical file and all of their medication history was lost for their daughter, they recognized how important having this information in their hands was. It is important to know what medications you’ve tried and what the outcome/results were.

"Courage is not having the strength to go on; it is going on when you don't have the strength." - Thedore Roosevelt


The second part of this book are fillable worksheets to last 52 visits to keep track of what happened at each visit - whether it is the weekly therapist or the psychiatrist you visit monthly, there is always a great deal information discussed and it can be hard to keep track of it all. 

The pages contain a place for height, weight and blood pressure - important things to monitor when trying new medications, as well as a place to list the medication name and the current dosage. 

The majority of each page provides space to write down family notes that you need to remember to tell the clinician that you are seeing. There is equal space available to write down the feedback and comments from the clinician. 

Finally, it ends with spots to include when the next visit is and a 3 point to-do list because you know there is always something for the parent or family to do in between visits as it relates to helping care for your child with mental health needs. 

This book is solving the needs of families who are raising children with complex mental health needs, who themselves don’t have the mental bandwidth to keep track of it all without a little bit of organizational assistance.
