Information Session: Zoom Parents Support Group

Zoom Parents Support Programme

The programme will support 30 young people in Torbay struggling with mental health, but not qualifying for CAMHs support, by equipping their parents/carers to support their mental and emotional health and healing. 

From lived experience, we have seen the importance of the parent/carer role in a young person's mental health recovery. This early intervention program will address early onset mental health problems in young people, resolving the problems or preventing their escalation within the family unit.


Our parenting programme provides:

  • Psychoeducation and skills training: guiding parents/carers to support the recovery of a young person suffering with their mental health using our evidence-based clinical intervention.


  • Parental self-care: teaching parents how to care for their own mental and emotional health to best support their child.


  • Navigating statutory support: Coaching parents/carers on how to access the support offered by schools, the NHS and non-statutory organisations.


  • Peer support: “Lived experience often speaks with more authority to people in crisis" (Dr D Starley).



The sessions will be 1 hour long, running weekly over Zoom.
