PACT is a Suffolk-wide support group for parents and families who are supporting children and young people with emotional and mental health issues whether diagnosed or otherwise. We organize regular meetups across the county and are a group of friendly and experienced parents who offer support, education, training, help and advice on many areas around children's mental health.
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!
We also offer 1-1 help and support (by email, text, phone and social media), training sessions and workshops for parents, guest speakers have also included Healthwatch Suffolk & Suffolk Constabulary.
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.
Details of upcoming meetups/training and our social media can be found on our website www.parentsandcarerstogether.co.uk
