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.
