Life is not always easy and at times we can feel completely overwhelmed. No parent/ carer is 'perfect' - it's OK to struggle and have tough days!
It can be easy to blame any difficulties you have as a parent or carer on your mental health problems, or to over-compensate by trying to be a 'perfect parent/ carer'. It's important to remember though that all parents & carers have difficult times and there is no such thing as being perfect.
Try not to put too much pressure on yourself or give yourself too much of a hard time. Remember that you have general skills as a parent/ carer– regardless of any mental health issues – that will remain useful.
There is always someone at Huckleberry to listen and support our families. Please reach out to a member of staff who you feel most comfortable with.
