Parent and Carer Support Groups:
We understand that supporting a child who is experiencing mental health issues can feel isolating at times,
Join us at the Gwent Wildlife Trust's Magor Marsh Reserve for a morning of walking, talking, tea, coffee and cake.
In our work counselling and delivering Mental Health First Aid training we have found that there is very little support for parents and carers of young people experiencing mental health issues. That's why we are running these Wild Wellbeing mornings, to provide a place to meet, share and start building a support network in south-east Wales.
There will be the opportunity to walk in the beautiful Gwent Levels, find out more about the rich and varied wildlife or take part in woodland and craft activities and chat over a cuppa.
Wild Wellbeing will be run by Angela and Shirish from Elemental Health in association with the Gwent Wildlife Trust. The mornings are completely free but please RSVP so we know how much cake to bring.
Date: 22nd August
