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
