Growing together is part of both child and iCope adult mental health services in Islington. Our service is for parents with children aged 1-5 years living or with a GP in Islington. We provide psychological therapy to parents experiencing mild to moderate anxiety or depression and their children.
We aim to help parents feel better and to help their children learn to manage their emotions, build good relationships and develop skills for the future.
We also provide consultation and training to professionals working with adults with mental health difficulties and/or with children.
Families living in or with a GP in Islington with children aged 1-5 years old, where a parent has mild to moderate mental health issues such as depression or anxiety, and the children could also benefit from psychological input.
Referrals are accepted from healthcare professionals by email. We also accept self-referrals from families who contact our self-referrals line on: 0303 123 1000
If you think that growing together could help your family, then please speak to your health visitor, GP, or someone from your local children’s centre, nursery or school. They can talk to you about what support you would like and contact us for you, or you can self-refer.
