The Families in Mind services are working in partnership with Children and Family centre staff and health teams to improve the mental health and well-being of parents of young children. We offer support for parents prior to having a child, once their child is born and then until their child and or chidren reaches school age. Also, giving support to the partners of anyone with a mental health problem if required.
During term time we run supportive sessions which will help parents make positive changes. This is an open group and will have a subject to focus our discussion. This is for parents of 0 to 2yr old children.
