These workshops are designed as a starting point for families with children who have low level difficulties and may not have accessed support from mental health services. If parents are concerned that their child’s problem is causing a moderate/severe impact on their life or they are presenting with risky behaviours (self-harm, suicidal ideations), then these series of workshops are unlikely to address these concerns. If this is the case we would recommend making a CHUMS/CAMHS referral on our website; http://chums.uk.com/bedfordshire-and-luton-referral-forms/.

Please note that spaces for workshops are limited and allocated on a first-come, first served basis.
