We want to say a huge thank you to the NHS for supporting our Zoom Group for parents of young people struggling with mental health in Torbay.
Thanks to funding from NHS Devon, we are able to advertise this amazing opportunity for parents and carers in Torbay to learn how to better support a child or teen struggling with mental health.
Zoom Parents Support Programme: Torbay
Anxiety, depression, self-harm, and other mental health struggles are on the rise among young people, particularly following the COVID-19 pandemic.
A recent study shows that 1 in 5 children and young people in England aged 8 to 25 had a probable mental disorder in 2023.
As parents, we can be left feeling overwhelmed and helpless, not knowing where to turn for help.
This programme will support 30 parents in Torbay, caring for a child or teen struggling with mental health, but not qualifying for CAMHs support, by equipping their parents/carers to support their mental and emotional health and healing.
From lived experience and through working with thousands of parents, we have seen the importance of the parent/carer role in a young person's mental health recovery. This early intervention program will address early onset mental health problems in young people, resolving the problems or preventing their escalation within the family unit.
