PACT (Parents and Carers Together) began in 2013 when two parents realised they shared concern for children/young people experiencing mental health issues in Suffolk. After meeting up regularly and offering support over coffee, PACT was established to help locate, support and maintain the ongoing wellbeing of other parents and carers in similar positions.
PACT believes that through offering a safe space to listen, share and support, without judgement, but instead with positive ideas, shared experience and resources and welcoming a variety of guest speakers we will enable and empower parents to continue to support the wellbeing and futures of our children and young people as well as ourselves.
We would love to welcome you to one of our local meet-ups soon.
PACT is an associate member of "Positive Practice in MH"
We are currently meeting up on the first Monday of every month in Stowmarket, second of the month in Framlingham, the third Monday in Bury St Edmunds and Lowestoft and the third Wednesday in Ipswich. We are a very informal group and tea and coffee is always provided - sometimes even biscuits and cake! Come along.
PACT offer free, confidential support, including information and advice for any parent/carer worried about the emotional problems, behaviour or mental health of a child or young person. We offer a safe environment to support with no judgement.
