Breathe: help for parents of kids with T1D

Join us for our free online series on parenting a child aged up to 12 with type 1 diabetes.

Breathe: help for parents

‘Breathe’ helps you tweak your parenting now that type 1 diabetes (T1D) has joined the family.  

This two-part series offers support, information and hope to parents and carers of children aged under 12 who live with T1D. It’s suitable for all families, no matter how long ago – or recently – your child received their diagnosis.

The course is aimed at managing and supporting your child’s emotions and mental health after diagnosis. The insights you get will help your family in the months and years ahead.  

Come and meet a group of parents who know what life is really like when T1D joins the family!

NB: We’ll run a Breathe series for parents of teens later in the year. Make sure you’re a member of our Facebook group to see when registrations open.

What will be covered?

In these 60-minute sessions, hosted by psychologist and JDRF’s mental health lead Melanie Cullen, we look at ways to understand the impact of a chronic illness like T1D – not only on your child, but on you and the rest of your family. You’ll be able to share your stories, hear the experiences of other parents, and validate your feelings as you adjust to your ‘new normal’.

We’ll also discuss strategies to help make life easier and happier for the whole family.
