We have chosen to support two fantastic charities by running the Nap At The Museum event in St Albans on Friday 27th September.
The Children's Sleep Charity does incredible work, supporting families whose lives have often become unbearable due to their children's poor sleep. Working with families from all backgrounds, their small team has helped hundreds of children to develop good sleep habits.
Mind is another incredible charity which works with people, again, from all backgrounds, all over the UK who suffer from mental health issues.
Being a parent in the 21st century is a challenge for most parents, juggling work and family needs, and it's no surprise that many of us suffer with anxiety and depression, or other challenges. So by supporting Mind, we are acknowledging that mental health is something to talk about, and that there is help available if you need it.
Sleep deprivation can have a serious impacton emotional, physical and mental health, many families seeking our support are approaching crisis point.
We offer a range of services from working directly with parents to training professionals in the NHS
Our work is based on the latest research and we have a team of experts who input into our training materials and courses. We believe in working in partnership with families and offer a gentle approach to making lasting changes to your child’s sleep patterns.
Every year, one in four of us will experience a mental health problem. But hundreds of thousands of people are still struggling.
We believe no-one should have to face a mental health problem alone. We’ll listen, give you support and advice, and fight your corner.
There's a close relationship between sleep and mental health.
Living with a mental health problem can affect how well you sleep, and poor sleep can have a negative impact on your mental health.
