Our Children and Young People page provides support and signposting for a number of issues.

At A Father’s Child Services CIC we offer Counselling and our Outcomes Star mentoring packages for holistic support and well-being, we aim to provide ‘Better Outcomes‘ for our children and young people (C&YP) in The West Midlands.  We aim to consider young peoples issues and Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE’s) through a trauma informed lense. Young people are experiencing mental health more now in the era of Social Media:

  • Seven are likely to have been bullied
  • Six may be self-harming
  • One could have experienced the death of a parent
  • 10 are likely to have witnessed their parents seperate
  • 3 could have a mental disorder

In an average group of 30 15-year-olds:

Record levels of young people are struggling. Academic pressuresocial media,  bullyingpoverty, lack of availability of professional mental health support – all have been named as continuing this epidemic of poor mental health in our young people.

Let’s work together to see how we can help.

Resources For Young People

Support for Fathers or soon to be Dad’s


Becoming Dad

Becoming Dad is our new guide for expectant and new fathers, launched in November 2021 by the Fatherhood Institute and Mental Health Foundation.

Dad Matters

Being a dad is sometimes hard, and often we can find it difficult to identify the right information, access support and it can really affect our own wellbeing

Fatherhood Institute

The Fatherhood Institute’s vision is a society that gives all children a strong and positive relationship with their father and any father-figures; supports both mothers and fathers as earners and carers; and prepares boys and girls for a future shared role in caring for children.

Mark Williams FHM

Keynote speaker Mark Williams is an advocate for fathers’ mental health. He is a motivational speaker and, on a mission, to start the conversation about fathers’ perinatal mental health issues and mental health in general.

Music Football Fatherhood is home to the online community of fathers, and men looking to be fathers in the future, from the UK and beyond. 

Mental health checks for Dads

NHS ENGLAND announced via a press release (2 December 2018) that when an expectant/new mother’s mental health has been identified as poor, a mental health assessment and relevant referrals are to be offered to her partner.

Families Need Fathers

We offer information, advice and support services helping parents to achieve a positive outcome for their children.

Dope Black Dads

Dope Black Dads is a digital safe space for fathers who wish to discuss their experiences of being black, a parent and masculinity in the modern world.
