About the Workshops
The Workshops are monthly run, multi-family groups lasting 2.5 hours. The whole family are encouraged to attend where possible; the parent or parents with mental illness, the non-ill parents, and the children. The groups include explanations of the mental illness for the children as well as drama sessions to represent their experiences. These sessions have been shown in a recent evaluation to significantly diminish the children’s levels of distress and disturbance and to improve the caring approaches adopted by the parents.
