Parent/Carer Mental Health and Wellbeing

We recognise that parents often need support for their own mental health and wellbeing. Many parents find valuable peer support through parent carer groups such as those listed above. You can also access support for your own mental health from your GP or through IAPT. The Sheffield Mental Health Directory includes information about mental health friendly services and activities across the city.

Some parents also identify as being autistic and may be interested in seeking an assessment for themselves. The Sheffield Adult Autism and Neurodevelopmental Service (SAANS) is a specialist service responsible for the assessment, diagnosis and post-diagnostic support of neurodevelopmental disorders in adults, including autism.
