I UNDERSTAND
A parent to parent voluntary support charity

I'm feeling down

Feeling down is a very normal reaction to certain life events including becoming a parent. Sometimes we can also feel down and we don’t know why. Often these feelings don’t last or we are able to deal with them.

Sometimes however, these feelings can continue and it can often be helpful to talk to someone. Friends and family can be a good source of support but there are times when you might feel you need to speak with somebody from outside of these groups. Peer Supporter are volunteer parents in Cuidiú who you can confidentially talk to about these issues iare listed below:
