P.A.C.E. (Parent, Carer and Professionals Events)

A free event to help families better understand the needs and difficulties that young people can face and how to manage potential issues/concerns they have about their young person.

 

What is P.A.C.E?

P.A.C.E. (Parent, Carer and Professionals Events) engage families in understanding the needs and difficulties that young people can face. The events help parents and carers to gain more confidence and knowledge about how to manage potential issues or concerns they may have about their young person.

Workshops are run by experts in their field, such as youth organisations, Hampshire CAMHS and Autism Hampshire.

There are information stands available, which provide relevant information on the numerous organisations and charities that provide support for families in Hampshire.

Please view timetable here:  Timetable

To request to have an Information Stand at this event, please email HantsCAMHSInnovations@southernhealth.nhs.uk

Please be aware that these events are provided completely free by the NHS, and therefore providing refreshments to all attendees is not possible. The venues for PACE events change, and we rely on sourcing large spaces to allow as many people as possible to attend, therefore we are unable to always provide parking, or be close to accessing local cafes. You are encouraged prior to attending to consider what refreshments you will need, and where you may be able to park. We would encourage you to take into account additional time you may need for parking, etc, in order to arrive at your sessions on time.

Our aims

To provide information in a way that is helpful, engaging and non-threatening;

To present information that will de-stigmatise mental illness and other related issues;

To raise awareness of potential issues and where to seek help, advice and support.
