Have a fun afternoon with other children whilst learning about looking after yourself and mental health!

CHAMPS is a peer support group for children who have a parent, carer or family member living with mental health challenges either in the home or in their family network. The group is facilitated by Family Life practitioners in partnership with Families where a Parent has a Mental Illness (FaPMI).

The program aims to give children opportunities to:

  • meet others with similar experiences
  • receive information and support
  • learn about healthy coping strategies
  • talk about mental health
  • have fun with games and activities

Suitable for 8-12 year olds with an adult family member who experiences mental health challenges (such as a parent, carer, adult sibling etc.)

Optional: Dinner afterwards for CHAMPS participants with parent/guardian consent
