The environment that a child grows up in and the relationships that a child has with their parents in the first five years of life is very important to the development of a child’s long-term positive mental health. NPC has worked in partnership with St Patricks Mental Health Services to develop a programme to support parents to support their young child’s positive mental health at home.

The key elements of this programme are

  •        Meeting your child’s needs- how everyday life can impact positively on your child’s mental health
  •        Coping when things don’t go your way! Helping your child understand and manage their emotions, dealing with challenges
  •        Developing and nurturing your relationship with your child
  •        Resilience, how to support your child to build resilience
  •        Children’s Rights – Giving your child the opportunity to live a mentally healthy life
  •        Five Ways to Wellbeing

Please note these sessions will be interactive allowing parents to participate and hence places are limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
