About the Service
We provide specialist mental health workers to parents and carers to support good mental health. We work alongside Oxfordshire County Council as part of a wider team including Specialists in Domestic Abuse, Addiction and Children’s Services to provide the right support for parents experiencing poor mental health.
What can we help with?
We help support parents who experience low mood, anxiety, emotionally unstable personality disorder, grief, the impact of trauma and those who experience suicidal thoughts and self-harm.
Who is this service for?
Parents who require mental health support and are currently involved with children’s social care.
What can I expect from the Service?
We offer an initial programme of 6 one to one sessions to help and support parents. We also signpost parents into clinical support services, so parents are able to continue seeking the right support once our interventions have been completed.
How do we work?
We use what is known as a ‘strength-based approach’ that helps to support people in an individual way with their own individual needs. We work with parents to provide strategies and interventions to help them to manage their mental health and wellbeing.
