POCAD Parents of Children and Young People with Anxiety & Depression

Living with and caring for a child or young person with anxiety and depression is emotionally challenging for any parent or carer.

POCAD (Parents of Children/Young People with Anxiety & Depression) was formed in January 2019, a free group and resource for parents and carers. To date we have in excess of 130 members, all parents of children and young people struggling with mental health in our local community.

To watch your child struggle with negative emotional health is a painful and heart-breaking experience; we want to fix the problem, protect them and take away their pain. In our attempts to do this we often create more anxiety and hinder the recovery process impacting our own wellbeing and that of the wider family.

The purpose of the group was to bring parents together, share experiences, learn, support each other through traumatic times and to guide our young people to overcome their mental health challenges.

POCAD wants to provide a resource for parents and be the go-to place Many parents mask their own for guidance and anxieties relating to their child’s mental support across health; not knowing who to talk to in fear of Berkshire We want to learn how judgment or where to turn for support and guidance. This can be a lonely and isolating place for many parents and carers.

best to engage with services who can support our children, we want to keep our children in education and understand how best to help them do this. We want to educate ourselves and our young people on how to take control of anxiety and depression and live a healthy, contented life.

My own personal and professional experiences highlighted that there was a need for a local group offering support and guidance to parents in this field. 22

POCAD wants to provide a resource for parents and be the go-to place for guidance and support across Berkshire.

or feel isolated with your experiences. The group provides a safe hub for parents to communicate, offload and get support.

In addition to our on-line group there will be monthly meetings, the first to be held in the Wokingham Borough with the intention of developing this wider across Berkshire in the long term. The group and service will remain free of charge to all service users, enabling everyone to have access to a resource that is very much needed across the region. If you are a parent or carer with a child or young person struggling with Anxiety & Depression, please get in touch. You do not have to be alone

If you are a Facebook user, you can access the closed group online. Alternatively, email Karen on POCADBerkshire@outlook.com or telephone 07899 713697 to find out more about how you can access support from the group.
