The Children and Families department provide information sessions for parents who have concerns, or would simply like more information, about their child’s emotional wellbeing and mental health.
Each monthly session has a different topic focus. There is also an opportunity for parents and carers to meet other parents and supportive professionals in a safe relaxed environment. Parents and carers of 11-18 year olds from in and around Edinburgh are welcome to attend any of the sessions.
