Please be aware we keep all of our meetings (Expect the family meetings) are for adults only so they are a space where everyone can speak openly.
Pop In Meetings
Pop-In Meetings are an opportunity to chat with other families in similar situations. We have a couple of tables around with chairs, where we can sit and chat about anything from our children to what’s on TV. It is a good place to ask for advice about anything that is worrying you, with the group or on a 1:1 basis. There is never any pressure to talk, it’s fine to sit and listen.
Evening Pop In Meetings
Evening Pop-In Meetings are essentially the same as the normal Pop-In Meetings, however, they give people who have commitments during the day time, an opportunity to come along.
This is a pop-in meeting for anyone who wants to chat to other people in similar situations. Children are able to attend this meeting, but are the responsibility of their parents.
Hospital Support Group
Re:educate meetings are to talk about all things related to education and share worries and advice. There are also some drop-in clinics with SENDIASS and the Local Authority.
We work with CAMHS, the Local Authority and other services to have speakers talking about topics relevant to our families. Each speaker decides how to give their presentation and there is always an opportunity to ask questions. Generally, there will be a break to get refreshments. The chairs will be laid out in rows facing the speaker with a table of information by the entrance. Notes are taken from each meeting and shared on the Facebook group and website. If you have a question you want to be asked but can’t make the meeting, we are always happy to ask for you.
These meetings for families who have children about to be admitted to, currently in or recently discharged from adolescent psychiatric hospital. This group offers mutual support and advice from parents who have been through the same situation. Please be aware this is for Adults only.
