Summary:
The Southwark Parental Mental Health Team is part of Southwark Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS). We work with families who have children under five years old where there is some form of mental distress being experienced by one or both parents.

We work in partnership with adult mental health services, CAMHS, social care, Children’s Centres, and other health and social care providers.

How we can help
We work with families to help parents access mental health services, if needed, and also services within Children’s Centres.

We help parents where there are issues at home relating to bonding and attachment, mental health and the impact upon the family, relationships, and social isolation.

If required, we can also help with practical concerns such as vocational training, housing, immigration and finance, and signposting to other services.

Help and advice for professionals
We provide advice and consultation to Children’s Centre Staff if there are concerns regarding a parent’s mental health. Out team also offer training to Children’s Centre staff on the subject of mental health awareness.

Group work
Our team run parenting groups and courses on topics such as recognising postnatal depression, and managing stress. We also run regular therapeutic groups, including:
  • Therapeutic Baby and Toddler Group
  • Keeping Well Post Birth
  • Art Group
These are closed groups, please contact the team to make a referral.
