We have received some funding from RDC to set up a mental health and well-being group for parents, to raise awareness and understanding of their children’s immerging/current mental health difficulties.
The group will offer parents/carers the opportunity to access information and guidance on self-care, looking at therapeutic interventions, reflective skills, nutrition, sleep, exercise, mindfulness and hobbies. This will lead to greater emotional resilience, lessen anxiety and have the ability to self-moderate when in need. There will also be time allocated to give individuals the time to share their stories in a supportive, confidential environment, which will reduce feelings of isolation and give a feeling of being heard without any judgement on them as parents/carers. There will also be a programme throughout the year, which will look at and discuss the signs and symptoms of different mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, stress and panic attacks. How they can listen effectively to their children, learn coping strategies that may help their children and how to access various support. This will lead to a greater understanding of children’s presenting needs, how they can best support their children and confidence to access mental health services when appropriate.
