Platfform for families
Platfform for Families is a programme of support for parents, carers, and siblings of a child facing mental health challenges in Cardiff or the Vale of Glamorgan.
We all want the best for our children and when they are hurting it causes pain, fear and a feeling of helplessness. Supporting a child with mental health challenges can take its toll on family life raising levels of stress, anxiety, and feelings of isolation. This project offers a safe space for parents and siblings to meet, chat and find the support they need.
