We were 1 year old in November 2014, so we asked the staff we worked with what they thought of the PICT PMH service. In order to assess Islington Children & Family Services staff satisfaction with PICT’s Parental Mental Health service provision, an online survey was sent to teams who have been receiving the service. The teams receiving provision from the Parental Mental Health service were:
IFIT1, IFIT2, IFIT NRC, AMASS, CiN Highbury, CiN Hornsey, CiN Holloway, CiN Barnsbury, CiN Finsbury, CiN Canonbury, CiN Disabilities, Families First Highbury & Hornsey, Families First Barnsbury & Finsbury, and Families First Holloway & Canonbury.
Read a summary of the participants' feedback.
We ran a three-module training programme to four cohorts of staff working in children and family services. Read a summary of the participants' feedback.
The Working with Parental Mental Health course was divided into 3 modules (one module per half day) focussing on the following:
Module 1 – Understanding personality disorder and other mental health presentations and how symptoms impact on parenting
Module 2 – Practical skills – structure skills
Module 3 – Practical skills – relationship skills
