A place for community

A safe space for mothers to share how they are feeling with women who completely understand 24/7.

It’s hard to be ok when your child’s not

Which is why I run a Facebook Group to support mums of children who are struggling.
If your child is struggling with their mental health, the first thing I want to start by saying is: I’m so sorry to hear that. You are so welcome here.

I can’t claim to know your experience, but I know that when my daughter was struggling with her mental health and ended up in a psychiatric hospital after three suicide attempts, all I wanted to do was take away her pain and make everything better.

I was able to get my child the support she needed

When my daughter was struggling there were services to help her, specifically the Children and Adolescent Mental Health Services, that are available to us in the UK. I thank them for the support they gave to her.

But, as her mother, I felt impotent, alone and isolated. My thoughts were anxious, terrified and panicked. I continuously asked myself: Had I caused this?

There was no help available for me to navigate these feelings and at some level it felt selfish and self indulgent to ask for it. There was no-one who could understand the constant thought that I had failed her. No-one to stop me reliving every one of my parenting mistakes.

But as a mother, I needed support too

Born of that experience I set up the private Facebook Serenity Circle Community to ensure you do not have to navigate your child’s mental health struggles alone.

Joining this private community will provide you with a safe space for you to share exactly how you are feeling with women who completely understand 24/7.

I’m pleased to say my daughter is now thriving, we got through it and you can too.

You don’t have to face this alone
