Maryland Coalition of Families
Ronda Bullock is a Family Peer Support Specialist at the Maryland Coalition of Families, where she helps families of transitional-aged youth with behavioral health needs. She also is the Lead Family Coordinator on the SAMHSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration) Transitional Age Youth Grant for Prince George's County in Maryland. She uses her personal experience as a parent and COPMI (Children of Parents with a Mental Illness) to connect, support, and empower families by providing resources and referrals, as well as one-on-one support. She assists families with navigating systems and services, providing the tools to advocate, and helping to raise public awareness and fight stigma. Ronda’s hope is to let struggling families know they are not alone. Ronda is a mom to an amazing young man and benefactor to his dog, which has yet to be determined to be the complete bane of her existence.
