Nessie in Ed – Family Support

Back to Support

Nessie in Ed empowers parents/carers to support their child or young person's mental health. It can help with anxiety, school avoidance, self-harming behaviours and many other challenges. The team is made up of experienced professionals, many of whom have lived experience.

What to expect

After self-referral, you will hear back within two weeks. You can expect a friendly, listening ear from their experienced, non-judgemental team. You don’t need anything but yourself to access 1:1 support but you will need a device with an internet connection to access online events.

The aim is to help parents/carers develop a positive and more confident approach to supporting their young person, whilst offering a chance to gain peer support, useful strategies and practical tools.

Areas of support include, but are not limited to:

  • Anxiety
  • Bereavement and loss (including divorce and separation)
  • Bullying
  • Eating disorders (in collaboration with PEDS)
  • LGBTQ+ and gender questioning
  • School avoidance
  • Self harm
  • Managing meltdowns

To book one-to-one support, please complete the form by clicking here and a member of the team will be in contact to arrange a chat. Please note: there is an expectation that you will have attended relevant workshops before booking a 1-1 session.

This service is free to parents and carers of children & young people living within Cambridgeshire and Peterborough struggling with mental health challenges and/or self harming behaviours.
