PLACE parent support

White curve

Welcome to PLACE

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 the 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.

If you'd like to add your group to this list, please submit the details here.

“Being involved with PLACE has been really fundamental to my own personal growth and development, my own understanding. For me PLACE came along at the most ideal time and became like a real bit of glue for me through the chaos of Covid.”
