Re:Minds is a Southampton based organisation supporting families whose children/young people have Autism, ADHD or other neurodiverse needs and/or mental health needs – with or without a diagnosis. Our aim is to allow people whose children face similar issues to meet up in an informal setting to share knowledge and talk about any challenges our families are facing. We don’t claim to be experts, just other families who understand what it can feel like to be on this journey.
Support Group Meetings
These meetings are an opportunity to chat with other families in similar situations over a cuppa! It is a good place to ask for advice about anything that is worrying you, with the group or on a 1:1 basis. There is never any pressure to talk, it’s fine to just sit and listen. We have meetings in Woolston and Shirley – check the dates section for more details.
Evening Pop In Meetings
Evening meetings give people who have commitments during the day time, an opportunity to come along, chat to other parent/carers and seek advice from us. This group takes place in Shirley.
This is support group for anyone who wants to chat to other people in similar situations. Children are able to attend this meeting, but are the responsibility of their parents. Family group meetings take place in Shirley and Woolston and parents/carers are welcome to come along without their children if they prefer!
This is a new group for 2022 and is open to anyone who feels they are in crisis. At this group we offer 1:1 advice and support around crisis care as well as linking with the new Keyworkers project. There is also a chance to speak to other families in similar situations.
Speaker Meetings & Workshops
Crisis Care Group
We have speakers from CAMHS and other services talking about topics relevant to our families. Each speaker decides how to give their presentation and there is always an opportunity to ask questions. Each video is shared to our YouTube channel – www.youtube.com/remindscic
We also link with CAMHS and other services to run workshops for families where they can learn practical strategies to support their children. Please see the dates section for more information
