Parent & Carer Mental Health
It’s Mental Health Wellness week and what a perfect time to come together in community. This workshop focuses on you. Why? Because you are incredibly important and we see you working hard to take care of others and advocate for your young person’s needs. In this workshop we will discuss different types of wellness and even different types of rest. This will help us explore how you personally recharge and what steps could we take to help you meet those needs, no matter how small.

Each in-person course will have a max of 15 attendees and will be in a Workshop format.

The course will run 10am-12pm and there will be lunch provided afterwards as well as time for questions for the in-person course. When booking, please do let me know of any dietary requirements. Bookings close a week before the event to allow planning.

We apologise – but these courses are not suitable for children and there is no childcare available.
