PHU Parents Facebook Page

The PHU Parents Facebook page is moderated by Registered Nurses on the Growing Healthy Families team at the Porcupine Health Unit, Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. (excluding holidays).

Every parent has questions at one time or another. We can help by providing up-to-date information and answering your parenting questions. PHU Parents is a place where Northern parents can get together and chat. We’ll also let you know what events are coming up in your area.

Here are some things we have already discussed:

  • family planning
  • pregnancy
  • breastfeeding
  • the growth and development of your child
  • child safety
  • mental health
  • how to talk to your child and teen about alcohol, tobacco, cannabis and other drugs
  • community services for your family

You can also call our Porcupine Health Unit toll free line at 1-800-461-1818 or e-mail us at                      

Don’t wait; join the conversation! PHU Parents… with help when you need it!
