This month’s topic: Teenage Brain

Parenting and your caring role

Being the parent of a teenager or young adult can be tough. Knowing how to respond when they’re experiencing mental health challenges can be even tougher.

Everyone’s experience is unique

Join us online each month to learn about the topics parents in caring roles find beneficial, such as:

  • Relationships and family dynamics
  • Understanding self-harm
  • Lived experience recovery stories
  • Understanding eating disorders
  • Alcohol and other drugs
  • Communication skills
  • Hearing voices
  • Self-care and wellbeing

Topics are announced each month.

Each session offers a safe, supportive and non-judgemental environment.

Where: The Online Parent Support Group via zoom provides a service in a safe, supportive and non-judgemental environment.

Cost: There’s no cost for participating.

When: On the first Thursday of the month.

Time: 5.30pm on Zoom
