PACT Parents and Carers Together CIC Parent/carer Support Group across Suffolk for those caring for children/young people with mental health issues

General Details

PACT is a Suffolk-wide support organisation for parents and families who are supporting children and young people with emotional and mental health issues whether diagnosed or otherwise.

**Due to current COVID-19 restrictions we are currently running Zoom meetups weekly on Fridays 6-7pm, our phone support line is still available and as ever we offer our closed support group on Facebook which is open to parents/carers in Suffolk looking for support for their children/young people***

We are a group of friendly and experienced parents who offer support, education, training, help and advice on many areas around children and young peoples mental health as well as guidance on maintaining our own wellbeing as carers.

We find we all share similar experiences, and are a non-judgemental group that recognize the need for supporting one another, usually over a coffee (face to face but currently via Zoom)

We also offer 1-1 help and support (by email, text, phone and social media), online webinars and training sessions and workshops for parentsue.  Previous guest speakers have also included Dr Beth Mosley (NSFT), Louise Parker Engels (Definefine.org.uk, Nancy Merfield (4YP), Healthwatch Suffolk & Suffolk Constabulary.

Upcoming small group (online) sessions on parent-guided CBT for children and SPACE supportive parenting for anxious childhood emotions - see website for details

We currently meet in Stowmarket at The Mix (1st Monday every month), Lowestoft at The Carlton Public House (3rd Wednesday every month), Ipswich at the Swan & Hedgehog (3rd Monday every month) and other targeted meetups where there may be a need. **currently on hold**

Details of info around meetups/training and social media  can be found on our website www.parentsandcarerstogether.co.uk
