“Despite there being a unique set of stressful circumstances for children and families coping with parental problem alcohol use (PPAU), significant barriers exist to recognising this issue and to accessing both formal and informal support for those affected.
As part of the work of Silent Voices we aim to recommend good resources to help people deal with the trauma of growing up with PPAU.
This experience is different for everyone, and specific groups – adult children and current children growing up with this issue, will require different supports. Professionals too, may need help in guiding people they work with. This page contains links to videos, reading lists and professional services that can help people at all stages of life and their recovery journey.”
