WDHB to launch two new mental health programmes for parents

7 April 2017

Whanganui District Health Board (WDHB) is launching two new programmes designed to support clinicians working with parents or caregivers who experience mental illness.

Called Keeping Families and Children in Mind and Let’s Talk, both programmes are focused on encouraging conversations that help children better understand what their parents are experiencing and very importantly - that they didn’t cause their parents’ illness.
