Keeping Families in Mind

Keeping Families in Mind is a new service that has been developed to provide emotional and practical support to the families of serving personnel.

 

The service is funded by the Ministry of Defence and has been designed to provide support to families who are struggling with the demands of military life, particularly following the deployment of a family member.

We know that it can be difficult to cope with the uncertainty of having family members away from home for lengthy periods and equally hard adapting when they return. if you are having difficulty coping with the extraordinary demands of living in this environment, we can help and our therapists are on hand to provide emotional support and practical advice to help you cope more effectively.

We know that family life carries on regardless and that this can bring its own stresses and challenges. We can support here too, providing independent advice and an opportunity to talk openly about the pressures you are dealing with.

If you are interested in finding out more about the service you can download the information brochure by clicking on the image alongside or call the office on 0114 258 4489 ext 106 to talk to one of the Counselling and Therapy team
