We understand how you feel.
The responsibility and pressures of being a primary carer for someone with a mental disability
means you can often feel helpless, overwhelmed and alone.
You can feel like you have lost your social life, independence and freedom.
We work with your child to develop life skills and greater independence – helping reduce the burden of care placed on you.
Support workers lack skill and experience, and aren’t consistent enough to build trust over time.
We offer training and support to service providers and support workers to help ensure your child receives quality service from familiar faces.
Schools don’t understand your child and won’t work alongside you to help manage their needs.
We work with teachers and support staff to educate them and give them the tools and resources they need to help your child succeed.
The constant challenge of managing your child means your own mental health is constantly being aggravated.
We are mental health experts and are able to support you as you navigate the challenges of caring for your child.
At Shrink & Co., we understand how hard it is to care for a child with a mental disability. We know that it can sometimes be really embarrassing being out in public when your child misbehaves. We know this can often result in isolation from family and friends, and a suffocated social life – which ultimately impacts on your own mental health.
We don’t want this to be your story. We want you to live a life you can’t imagine was possible.
