Parenting Mental Health is a safe, supportive community and charity that helps parents of young people with mental health issues. We’d love to support parents you work with and have brought together some resources for you to share.
We’d encourage you to send to any parents you know who have a child with a mental health issue. We know how isolating it can be and we want them to know there is help and support for them.
If you have any questions or would like to contact us to discuss how we can help you or collaborate, please email us. We look forward to supporting you to support parents.
If you work with a parent of a young person with a mental health issue who would benefit from some emotional support, you can refer them for a place in our Listening Circles. Please ask them to complete the form below and we will be in touch.
