There is a huge amount of support out there for everyone. This area of the site will be added to on a regular basis so we can share relevant and up to date information in order to support children, parents / carers and staff.
United Voice – support for mental health and wellbeing
United Voice was set up in 2019 when a group of young people, parents-carers and professionals came together to help make a difference in children and young people’s mental health. Over the last year the group have achieved some great things (you will find out more about this at the meeting) but the group have an ambition to do more.
To achieve this the group would like to invite more children, young people, parents-carers and community members to get involved in the work. We would like to invite you to attend an initial meeting to find out more. Click the link below for details:
Rollercoaster Support Group
We are a support group for parents/carers who are supporting a child or young person with any kind of emotional or mental health problem including:
- low mood
- eating disorders
- sleep problems
- suicidal thoughts
- obsessions and compulsions
You are not alone! Supporting a child or young person with emotional or mental health issues can be challenging, isolating and sometimes feel like you’re riding a real emotional rollercoaster!
Sign up to our E-Network
Just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get you signed up.
Parent Peer Support training
Would you be interested in receiving training to become a parent peer supporter? Peer supporters will offer support to other parents experiencing similar issues. Sometimes the best people to offer support are those that have already been through similar experiences. Knowing you are not alone by talking to someone who is ‘walking in similar shoes’ can bring strength you can’t get from anywhere else. Full training and support will be offered.
The ADHD Foundation works in partnership with individuals, families, doctors, teachers and other agencies to improving emotional wellbeing, educational attainment, behaviour and life chances through better understanding and self-management of ADHD, ASD and related learning difficulties such as dyslexia, dyspraxia, Irlen’s Syndrome, dyscalculia and Tourette’s Syndrome. We also provide training for GP’s, Teachers, Social Care agencies and other professionals, raising awareness to bring about positive change and inclusion in mental health, education and employment.
