All Mellow Parenting Programmes are thoroughly evaluated before being made available to services. We have our own internal evaluation team that conducts our initial pilots and focus groups. We also have strong links with universities to evaluate our programmes independently for feasibility and cost effectiveness.
Mellow Parenting Programmes improve parents’ mental health: they reduce anxiety and depression, increase well-being, self-esteem and self-confidence. We know that childrens development accelerates; in one study of three year old children, their language had improved up to their age level from a previously low level, and parents reported a decrease of their childrens behaviour problems.
