Following on from the successful launch of our Parent Support and Advice Line, we are delighted to let you know that we will be launching a series of Parent Support Groups from April 2020. The service is for parents living in Gloucestershire who are worried about the mental health and emotional wellbeing of their child (between the ages of 11-18).  

Funded by NHS Gloucestershire Clinical Commissioning Group, the service will provide 11 different support groups during 2020/21. Groups will take place on a variety of days and times at Gloucester, Forest of Dean and Cheltenham venues.  Click here for Parent support group leaflet and Parent support group diary.

Research demonstrates that involving parents in supporting their child’s emotional/mental health and wellbeing, ensures young people have better experiences and more positive outcomes. Providing parent support is also shown to prevent later use of both physical and mental health services. Previous pilot groups run by TIC+ have shown that parents continue to meet and support each other after the formal group ends! We are therefore very excited by the impact this service will have for children, young people and their families in Gloucestershire.  

Further details can be found on the new Parent Support Group page of our website. (Dec19)
