by Tiaki.MyTribe - Supporting families mental wellbeing in Consett, County Durham, United Kingdom

Tiaki.MyTribe is set up to support families through pregnancy, baby's first year and toddlerhood.

Who do we help? All parents, grandparents and carers are welcome to use our services. We welcome families in pregnancy, babys first year, toddlerhood, fostered/adopted children and those with additional needs.

Why is it so important? The issue surrounding maternal mental health is MASSIVE with up to 27% of new mums and 20% of new dads suffering with some mental illness in pregnancy or the first months/year of a baby's life. In one research study a staggering 90% of new mothers expressed feelings of loneliness.

The groups and classes we run reduce that social isolation , support not only the development of baby but also create friendships and support positive mental wellbeing in families.

Why Crowdfunding? It has become apparent that the cost of accessing groups and classes is a barrier for many families causing many businesses such as ours to struggle to maintain the upkeep of their properties, stay up to date with training etc and ultimately losing the much needed resources for new families.

By crowd funding our aim is to be able to offer our groups and classes to more people for a nominal fee/free (our prices are already low) while still being able to maintain our overheads.

Benefits of positive Mental Health? There are many:

Positive Family Mental Health supports babies and childrens mental health in their adult years.

Positive Mental Health supports positive development physical, emotional and cognitive development in babies and children.

Positive Mental Health gives a person more energy and as a result a more physically active life resulting in better physical health.

Improves the ability to learn.

Promotes positive relationships. 

Encourages activity such as access to work and social activities.
