Rise Community Hubs are launched in Warwickshire

parent

Are you a parent or carer of a Warwickshire child?  Would you like to join us for a coffee, and learn about common emotional wellbeing concerns in childhood, and find out what you can do to help? Our team of specialist mental health professionals are facilitating FREE coffee and information sessions at the new Rise Community Hubs.

Rise Community Hubs have been created for Children, Young People, Families and our wider communities to offer support, information and guidance on mental health. The first two Rise Community Hubs have now launched in the The Ratcliffe Centre (Ratcliffe Road, Atherstone, CV9 1LF), and Escape Arts (The Old Slaughterhouse Heritage & Arts Centre, The Yard, Sheep Street, Stratford-upon-Avon, CV37 6EE).

Information sessions at the Community Hubs will include a presentation of a topic, with refreshments available before and after, with a chance to meet other parents. If after the presentation, you would like to discuss your child with one of our professionals, you will be able to book into a drop-in consultation slot later in the morning or another week depending on availability.

In the future, we hope to provide and co-ordinate support with other local providers in the community and will be opening community hubs in Nuneaton, Rugby and Leamington.

Our main aims for the hubs are:

  1. To raise awareness of children and young people’s mental health
  2. To provide families with the opportunity to talk to a professional around mental health for any emerging issues, through our coffee mornings
  3. To connect families to the right support and make any appropriate referrals, using the Dimensions Tool
  4. To provide training to families around prevalent mental health issues
  5. To provide training and consultation to professionals

Each hub will provide a core service, but each will evolve depending on the local needs. The core offer will include:

  • Themed coffee mornings for parents
  • Weekly Consultation Sessions, where you can book a half an hour slot to see a professional in advance
  • Telephone Consultations
  • Training to professionals, such as schools, GP’s or the Third Sector
  • The provision of two bespoke mental health based programmes for primary and secondary schools.
