Mellow Parenting is a 14 week one day a week group designed to support families with relationship problems with their infants and young children. It combines personal support for parents with a video and direct work with parents and children on their own parenting problems. Mellow Parenting has proved effective in recruiting and engaging families with a variety of severe problems including families where there are child protection issues.
How do you access the programme?
Mellow Parenting does not directly run groups itself but trains professionals to run the group according to the model. If you are a parent or carer looking for help and you think Mellow Parenting might be helpful to you, please ask your GP, health visitor or social worker who may be able to refer you to a group in your local area.
