Infant Mental Health Awareness Week

This week is infant mental health awareness week with the focus on ‘Speak up for babies’. Infant mental health is rarely talked about and poorly understood.

Babies can’t speak for themselves so it is essential that politicians are reminded in this general election few weeks that babies and very young children also experience the negative effects on their mental well being of parental mental health problems, adverse experiences, family stress and the cost of living crisis.

Poor mental health as babies negatively affects their longer term development and well being.

EPIC have the expertise to assess children of any age and are always here to help.

ADHD Parenting Groups

EPIC’s ADHD Parenting Group sessions are led by our experienced mental health nurse.

We have had excellent feedback for both the in person and virtual two-hour group session which has been repeating monthly since October 2023.

The group session looks at the current understanding of ADHD and how it impacts on daily living for children and young people. It also covers ideas and strategies to help parents and their children learn to navigate living with ADHD.

The session was previously available only for those children and young people diagnosed with ADHD through EPIC. We have now widened the invite to anyone who has a child or young person with ADHD.

Please contact for more information or to book your place. Places are limited and allocated on a first come first serve basis.

Road works – delays approaching Exeter till 2024

Road works

Motorists are being warned of almost a year of disruption on one of the main approaches to Exeter. The next phase of work on £55m improvements to roads around South West Exeter are set to get under way soon – with roadworks lasting until the Summer of 2024.

The improvements around the A379 are all part of plans to support the development of 2,500 new homes and employment land on the edge of the city. But to facilitate the work, lane closures and contraflow traffic management will be in place for the duration of the work which is expected to be completed by summer 2024.

Work at the Devon Hotel roundabout and A379 Trood Lane junction in Exeter is due to start on Monday 18 September 2023 and is expected to be completed by Summer 2024. It will be carried out under lane closures or contraflow systems, alongside a temporary 30mph speed limit.

Night-time road closures of the A379 between the Devon Hotel Roundabout and Ellacott Road will be required between 7pm and 6am from Monday 18 September 2023 through until Friday 29 September 2023, (Monday night to Friday night inclusive only – no weekend working) to carry out critical works within the carriageway.

Lane closures and contraflow traffic management will be in place for the duration of the work which is expected to be completed by summer 2024. Further occasional night-time road closures of the A379, Bad Homburg Way, Dawlish Road and the Devon Hotel Roundabout will be required at times.

Please adjust your journey times accordingly.
