Supporting young people affected by the mental illness of a parent or sibling

We provide information, resources and support for children and young people who care for, or are affected by, a parent or sibling’s mental illness.

We’ve also developed a number of projects to raise awareness of the difficulties faced by these children and young people.

Our workshops for children and their families explore the issues they may experience, and aim to help overcome fears and stigma associated with mental illness, in a friendly, supportive and fun environment.

‘Kidstime workshops help me to be a kid again.’

With some of our partner organisations, we have also produced a number of training programmes to help professionals in the health, education and social care fields gain an insight into the needs of young carers and how to provide the best possible help and support for them.
