Empowering Parents and Carers: Mental Health Workshops by SIRG

At SIRG, we believe in the power of prevention when it comes to mental health. That’s why we’re excited to announce our upcoming series of workshops designed to educate and support parents, carers, families, and friends in understanding mental health, its causes, prevention, and steps towards recovery. With the support of experienced facilitators, our workshops aim to empower our community with knowledge and resources to foster mental well-being and support those in need.

We guide parents, carers, and friends on how to provide effective support, communicate empathetically, and connect individuals with appropriate resources and services.
