About our Meetings:
We are a very friendly, informal group and tea and coffee is always provided, see below for details of our face to face meet-ups which have restarted recently. We will continue meeting online weekly, but you will need to bring your own refreshments of choice!! Come along and find a whole world of support and resources.
Stowmarket meet-ups have been halted and merged with our popular Needham walk and talk.
Needham Market walk and talk sessions are every third Thursday of the month and started in November. Meet at the Duck and Teapot cafe at 10am we will walk around the lake and discuss topics around #mentalhealth, enjoying our #HappinessHour and having conversations around why it is so vital to maintain our own #wellbeing as parents and carers supporting a child or young person with mental health issues. Refreshments provided prior to or following the walk. (children and young people welcome)
Framlingham and Woodbridge drop-ins will commence in the autumn - watch this space for info
Thanks to Mid Suffolk and Babergh District Council's "Community Development Grant" and East Suffolk Community Partnerships for funding the above support
We are hoping to secure additional funding to help us to organise further meet-ups around the county every month to ensure we can meet as many members as possible.
Friday evening drop-in session every week where you will find support, signposting, discussion threads, laughter and a safe space to discuss anything you feel you need support for. There is no requirement to stay for the whole session and it's very informal - quite often we are joined by pets, children and partners. The link to join the online meeting room is shared in our closed group to ensure that only our parents/carers attend and we use the waiting room facility to make sure we only accept people in the group. Link to join our closed group is above.
We are currently meeting up every Friday from 6pm! Come along. It is a closed group for members only so please join the group. #PACTtalk webinars on occasional Weds from 6pm livestreamed into the group.
PACT offer free, confidential support, including information, advice and signposting to any adult worried about emotional issues, behaviour or mental health of a child or young person. We offer a safe environment of support with no judgement.
