Quotes from participants
Quotes from our children:
“Kidstime takes action on helping us learn about mental health in really fun ways. We use a lot of drama to help us figure out our own thoughts and feelings about our parent’s difficulty. This makes it easier for us to express things in a way that is interesting and easy to understand. Kidstime is never boring!”
“We normally start our group activity with lots of fun games and warm-up exercises. We then make up stories together that describe all our different experiences. We act these out and film some of them so that we can show our parents how we feel about the topic we have been working on.”
KidsTime Wirral is a monthly workshop for local families where there is a parental mental health difficulty; with an emphasis on helping children and young people affected by the issue to access information and support.
“KidsTime is different; it gives everyone a chance to share their thoughts, helping us overcome any fears or concerns we have, helping to increase our knowledge and understanding. It helps everyone feel a little lighter.”
