SMILES - Simplifying Mental Illness plus Life Enhancement Skills

SMILES stands for Simplifying Mental Illness plus Life Enhancement Skills. It is a service for children (aged 8-14) whose parents live with mental health difficulties.

Over eight group sessions, Family SMILES teaches children about mental illness and develops life skills that will improve their ability to cope. The parent also receives one-to-one support to understand their child’s experience of living in a family with mental illness. The family then completes a safety plan to ensure the child is safe and their wishes are considered in the event of the parent becoming ill again.
