This is an extraordinary time for us all. Our thoughts are with all those dealing with the impact that COVID 19 is having on our community and the world at large. The potential for emotional and mental stress to parents, children, and families is not to be taken lightly and Baptist Care SA’s Family Mental Health Support Services (FMHSS) offers our full support to best navigate these challenges.
Accessing professional support can help process any ongoing emotional duress, and explore ways to cope by developing a toolbox of helpful ideas, healthy perspectives, coping skills and strategies.
Baptist Care SA’s FMHSS is currently offering no obligation and cost free parent/carer/educator support sessions to all of the parents and staff that belong to the schools and families in our community. No referrals are needed – you can contact us directly to register your interest via email.
There are no criteria or forms to fill in. Once we receive your email we will contact you to organise your free 1 hour parent/carer/educator support session which will be delivered via either video call (preferable) or over the phone session. Please refer the attached fact sheet for more information on how to register.
At the end of the session you can expect to have some practical skills and tools to support you to have the confidence to have those important and sensitive discussions with your children/students/grandchildren to alleviate any concerns or anxiety that they may be feeling.
Our early intervention and client focused therapeutic counselling model helps to support children and families to nurture their inner strength and resilience. We welcome and encourage those within our community who would like support to contact us as soon as possible to organise your one hour support session to discuss how we can best help. If after your first hour you feel you would like further sessions or a session with your child, this is also possible at no charge and is something we can discuss at the completion of your first session.
