Please find attached some exciting information on a new Peer Support group for parents caring for a young person (11-25years) experiencing Mental Health issues. The group which is run as part of the new Parents Carewell Partnership is meeting online, fortnightly on a Friday 10-11am. The next session will be Friday 3rd September.
The group aims to –
- Provide parents/carers with a safe space to share their experiences and hear from other carers in similar situations
- Help improve wellbeing
- Support parents/carers with ways they can help their child
- Navigate complex systems such as social work assessments and welfare benefits
- Help parents/carers find out more about their rights as a carer
