Parent Carer Support

The Oaks is proud to support Roller Coaster.


Roller Coaster offers help to parents/carers who support children or young adults with emotional or mental health needs. These needs may include: anxiety, low mood, depression, self-harm, eating disorders, sleep problems, suicidal thoughts, obsessions and compulsions.

Please remember that you are not alone; supporting a child or young person with emotional or mental health issues can be challenging, isolating and sometimes feel like you’re riding a real emotional rollercoaster.

You are not alone – come along to our group and meet other parents/carers in similar situations and get support. Our meetings will include guest speakers, discussion topics and practical tips for coping.
