What is CHIME?
Having a sense of connectedness means feeling content with the relationships we have with others and ourselves.
Being hopeful and optimistic about the future helps us to believe that things can get better, there is something to look forward to.
The concepts of Connection, Hope, Identity, Meaning and Empowerment (CHIME) underpin the approach taken by CCFSS in the development of the CHIME project.
CHIME for Families
The CHIME project will deliver programs targeted to the individual needs of families, creating opportunities to increase family functioning.
Parent focused programs help improve attachment relationships and promote positive parenting to increase parenting capacity.
Child focused programs are designed to enhance children’s understanding of mental illness, and provide peer support to promote resilience and positive coping strategies.
Family focused interventions focus on the needs of both parents and children to help improve communication and reduce the impact of mental illness on the whole family.
