Patenschaften für Kinder psychisch erkrankter Eltern, AMSOC e.V.
Children need reliable relationships and support. Children, whose parents suffer intermittently from severe psychological illness, usually lack both. In many cases, they become care-givers for their sick parents. That great burden puts them at risk to become mentally ill themselves. The Berliner youth agency AMSOC e.V. tries to avoid, by finding and joining those children with voluntary godparents. They take care of the children regularly and long-term. On a weekly bases they organize some activities with their charges, let them participate in the godparent's daily lives and in the worst case, they give the children shelter until the parents are back on their feet.
Experts from AMSOC e.V. choose carefully the godparents and prepare them with specific training for the acceptance of this responsible honorary role.
