Child & Family Therapy, Training & Consultancy Services

Facilitating the social, emotional, and mental health  of children and families

throughout the North West of England



Child in Mind is closely monitoring the rapidly evolving situation with the new coronavirus. The safety and wellbeing of both our staff, and the children and families we work with is at the forefront our decision-making. As we navigate this new terrain please be assured that we will continue to keep the best interests of our clients at the heart of any changes to service provision.


Maintaining the mental health of children and families at this worrying time is essential, now more than ever. We have been working with our partner agencies to think about ways that the support we offer as key workers at this time can be carried out in a safe way for all concerned. Clearly we need to be flexible in our approach and we will be in touch with all of our families with a clear plan of how we can offer support as this needs to be agreed on an individual basis. Please bear with us as we put our plans in place, we really do appreciate how difficult life is for some of you right now.
