Growing Together is an innovative partnership between icope (primary care adult mental health service) and Islington CAMHS. The team provides psychological intervention to parents with primary care level mental health issues and their children aged one to five, who also require psychological intervention.
The service offers a range of interventions and tailors support to each individual family, with the aim of improving both parent and child wellbeing. Families are seen at community locations, such as Children’s Centres, and some services can also be provided at the family’s home or online/by phone where appropriate.
Growing Together also provides outreach activities in the community in order to maximize the accessibility of the team. This includes offering psycho-educational workshops to the public, and training and consultations to professionals.
Please see the iCope website for more information, including information about how to contact the service regarding training or consultation and details of upcoming open-access workshops for the public (please note that members of the public attending these workshops are not referred to or assessed by our team).
