Parents and Carers Together (PACT)

We are a support group for parents/carers of children/young people with mental health issues and meet-up monthly in Stowmarket, Ipswich and Lowestoft.

Aims:

Our vision is to reach as many parents and carers across Suffolk as we can who are in the isolating place of caring for a child or young person with mental health issues. We want to both support (either by face to face meetups, online forums, and our new outreach service) and also offer training and tools to help both with a parent/carers wellbeing and via them, their child/young person too. 

We are continuously researching new ideas and projects to both input experience from our parents and to share good ideas and therapeutic tools with our parents/carers. We believe in training our parents/carers to support each other and to reach as many others as possible to share the knowledge and experience we have gained.

Values:

We are all parents/carers of children and young people who have had or are currently having issues with their mental health and as such we are experienced in the feelings and issues which may arise. We believe that by supporting each other we can help reduce the isolation and stigma, in a 100% non-judgemental forum.
