Welcome to the PLACE parent support hub
The PLACE Network aims to develop, promote, and sustain parent and carer support and involvement in children and young people’s mental health across the UK. Parents and carers with lived experience of supporting a child with mental health issues and professionals with an interest in parent support meet monthly to share practice and ideas.
One of key objectives of the PLACE Network is to connect existing parent and carer support groups/projects or those with an interest in developing one. Our interactive map below shows some of the mental health focused parent and carer support groups from around the country who are currently members

Gemma is easy going and relates to everyone really well. I've used Gemma before in a previous role and I knew that she would be well liked and respected due to her nursing background and great deal of experience within the mental health fieldfrom a hospice employee
