Wellbeing & key school information for parents/carers
VitaMinds provide the NHS Talking Therapies Service in Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire. This service provides free and confidential therapeutic support for anyone 16 and over who is feeling anxious, low, or depressed. We have a range of treatments available, including group work, 1:1, online programmes and telephone support.
As a parent/carer/guardian, you want to do the best you can for the children you look after. This this isn’t always an easy task and can leave little time to look after yourself. Anxieties and worries can play on your mind and stop you from getting things done or even feeling happy. If you find yourself worrying more than normal, feeling less motivated or just generally struggling with your mental health, VitaMinds can help.
Everything it does is based around Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, providing tools and techniques to overcome feelings of anxiety, low mood or depression amongst other things. For more information, either see VitaMind’s website including a self-referral form or give them a call on 0333 200 1893.
