We believe that no carer should feel alone, and it is vital that all unpaid carers feel supported in their caring role, or feels supported to stop providing care if that's what they choose.
For parents/carers living in the Newcastle/Gateshead area, who are supporting a child or young person with emotional or mental health issues.
You might be struggling emotionally and looking for strategies to help you cope. Or maybe you just need to talk to someone who understands the extra challenges you face and who can point you in the right direction to get the support you need for your family.
To help, we offer 1-1 telephone appointments with a family support adviser for parent carers looking for a listening ear, reassurance and practical and emotional support.
PeerTalk is a national charity that provides weekly volunteer facilitated peer support groups for people living with depression, anxiety and related distress.
PeerTalk offers a forum for sharing and listening, providing encouragement and, (more importantly), hope to attendees.
