Support for ParentsAs an organisation we recognise that support for children and young people with emotional wellbeing and mental health issues is vital; we also recognise that support for parents and carers within a young persons life can be equally as important.

 

It can be both distressing and stressful when trying to offer support to young people, to know what the ‘right’ thing to do is and where to go.

 

We try to provide support to parent and carers to enable them to help children and young people in their lives but to also recognise that for us to be able to provide effective support for others we must care for ourselves.
 

Mental Health Workshops

We provide a variety of different educational workshops for parents focused on supporting the emotional wellbeing and mental health for young people, as well as improving awareness to issues faced by young people.

 

Workshops include:

  • General mental health awareness information

  • Statistics and facts both locally and nationally regarding mental health

  • Information about services available to offer support for both children, young people and families

  • How to recognise the signs that a young person may need support

  • How to talk to young people about mental health concerns or issues

  • Specific topics relevant to young people i.e. understanding self-harm, impact of bullying, building resilience, mindfulness tools etc.

Workshops are delivered both via schools and in the community; access to sessions free of charge can vary depending on where you live so please contact for further information to avoid disappointment.
