We provide a safe, non-judgmental, confidential space for parents and carers, whose children are struggling with their mental health to come together; to be supported, to connect, chat and share. To know that you are not alone. We provide support for the whole family.
An informal, café style group for parents to meet, chat and connect with one another. A safe space where you can talk about anything. You can share as much or as little as you like. We have a laugh and a cry! Our group is facilitated by trained volunteers; some with lived experience.
