We are very pleased to launch our new ‘Help for Parents‘ website, designed to provide support for parents in this situation. The website arose out of our work with parenting support groups, and we are now running a pilot to see how it might be helpful when parents come into contact with CAMHS.
AYPH has undertaken a research project funded by the Sir Halley Stewart Trust, including an online survey, focus groups with parents and young people, and meetings with stakeholders. The project is described in more detail in our project summary. A briefing paper on the findings from our survey of over 300 parents was published in November 2016. The briefing paper was debated in the House of Lords.
A list of resources for parents can be downloaded here.
In a second phase of the work, AYPH undertook a project funded by NHS England, to scope out examples of good practice from across the country for working with parents facing these kinds of challenges.
We presented a poster on the There for You project at the PHE Conference. A copy of the poster can be downloaded here.
