ParenTalk Virtual Peer Support Group

ParenTalk Virtual Peer Support Group logo

Are you a parent with mild-moderate anxiety, depression or low mood, with a child under five years of age? The ParentTalk group is here to help.

Join the new virtual peer support group for parent and infant wellbeing support. The group explores the emotional wellbeing of both parent and infant, supports healthy parent/child relationships and encourages parents to connect with and support each other. The aims of this informal group are to:

  • reduce isolation among parents with children during COVID-19
  • improve emotional wellbeing of parents
  • facilitate parent discussion around parent and infant emotional health
  • encourage parents to set up their own ongoing support group.

The course takes place digitally over a six-week period and each week focuses on a different aspect of parent and infant wellbeing.

If you would like to take part in this group, please ask your family Health Visitor or a Psychological Wellbeing practitioner to refer you. Alternatively you can call our Admin teams on the numbers below and they will arrange for a health visitor to call you back:

  • Bournemouth & Christchurch - 01305 363043
  • Poole - 01202 646425

The course facilitator will then look at the referral and if this is the right group for your needs, they will contact you to introduce themselves to you and discuss more details about the group.
