M-PACT (Moving Parents and Children Together) supports children/young people aged 10-17 who are experiencing the effects of parental substance misuse within the family.

The programme offers a ‘Whole Family Approach', working with parents and children from up to eight families at any one time in different group combinations.

The programme is made up of 10 sessions, this includes an individual family assessment, eight consecutive weekly core sessions and a family review session. The programme is run by experienced professionals who work with the young people and parents to reduce the harmful impact that parental substance misuse and addiction has on family life.

The programme has been evaluated by the Mental Health Research & Development Unit (MHRDU) at the University of Bath. Their findings have shown that all the families involved felt that they had been helped by attending the programme.
