Being a parent can be the most rewarding job in the world, but it can also bring challenges – which may affect your mental health.
As part of Parent Mental Health Day, a brand-new web page has been created as a one stop shop for parents needing information, advice or tips – whether you’re a new mum or dad, pregnant or have a little more experience in the role.
You can take a look at the new webpage via the link below.
Rotherham’s Improving Access to Psychological Therapies service has joined forces with children’s services to raise awareness of mental health issues parents may face, promote better mental wellbeing for mums and dads and to normalise getting the support you need, when you need it.
If you are persistently struggling with low mood, constant worry, feeling worthless or feeling afraid that something bad might happen, you can self-refer to IAPT for free talking therapies online or by calling 03000 215 108.
IAPT is run by Rotherham Doncaster and South Humber NHS Foundation Trust, known as RDaSH for short, and offers a free, confidential NHS service.
