?We provide group counselling and education to children who have a parent with significant mental illness, and who have established psychiatric support for the parent. Three groups run every year, each consisting of eight 2-hour sessions for a maximum of 12 children. Areas covered in these groups include coping, communication and social skills, mental health education to help children understand their parent's illness, peer support, building self-esteem and confidence, and other recreational and relaxation activities. This service is offered as part of VCH Family and Community Enhancement Services.
Offered 3 times per year, Wed, 4 p.m. - 6 p.m. Please call for registration and information.
