We understand that seeing your children suffer from the abuse of parental alienation can be very distressing and have serious impacts on mental health.
Domestic abuse has serious impact on all of those affected, parents, children and extended families.
To be there for your children you also need to look after yourself and your own physical and mental health.
Alienated Children First is a victims lobbying group run by volunteers and we do not get any funding for support, counselling or legal services so unfortunately we do not have the resources to help victims directly.
If you are in need of help because of stress or suffering as a victim of abuse or you need legal assistance please consider the organisations below that we refer people to.
Feel free to share your story with us by email at this address firstname.lastname@example.org but please note the requirements of privacy and not to reveal any court related deltails that could be a breach of the in-camera rule and that this is not monitored and we do not have resources for supporting people.

Unfortunately some domestic violence and support organisations do not appear either receptive to or willing to help child and adult victims of Parental Alienation. If you have had any negative experiences with support organisations then you have our sympathy and please try the organisations above instead. There are people out there who believe victims and will help you. You are not to blame. You deserve support for you and your children #WeBelieveYou
