Stress Helpline

stress-coverUnfortunately, we are no longer offering a Stress helpline.

Dr Ann Edworthy, who previously ran our helpline has written a book, Managing Stress for Carers, that contains practical tips for dealing with the stress caring for a child with a neurological condition can put you under. Dr Edworthy is a Chartered Psychologist with practical and research experience in stress counselling and the book is very popular.
