Retweetd From ADHD Foundation

October is ADHD Awareness Month. To think of ADHD only as poor concentration, impulsiveness or hyperactivity is to trivialise what can be a very debilitating difference in Neuro cognitive capacity. Identified early, treated & educated how to manage it can transform & ‘enable’☂️ https://t.co/t7lqsNJcG0

What is Early Help/Family Support?

Parenting Support with Anxiety and Behaviour 

Merton's Children and Young People's Wellbeing Service are here to help with signs of anxiety or worry.  They can also support with challenging behaviour at home.   

This is a self referral programme and is open to all Merton Parents.  They work with the parent directly: We aim to give the parents strategies and tools to help them support their child, and to feel more confident in responding to their child’s behaviour.

The program consists of up to 8 weekly sessions with the parent. We are offering virtual sessions currently, due to COVID-19..

If you are interested in our service over the summer please email InfoMertonWP@swlstg.nhs.uk
