Online Parent Support Group

Being a parent of a teenager or young adult can be tough, knowing how to respond when there are mental health challenges can be even tougher.

Often parents in the caring role are impacted in several areas:

  • Relationships and family dynamics
  • Their own emotional health and wellbeing
  • Understanding the mental health system
  • Feeling equipped to manage a mental health crisis
  • Effectively communicating when someone is distressed.

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

The online parenting group will be facilitated by family peer facilitator, Grace. Grace brings a wealth of experience having worked with parents and has a lived experience of caring for her daughter who is aged in her early 20s with complex mental health challenges.

COST: This service is at no cost.

WHEN: The group will be held on the first Thursday of the month at 5.30pm.

Please register your interest by contacting Caroline at or call 9237 8900.
