Parent and Carer - Signposting support for  Mental Health and Well-Being

 Advice for parents and carers - Anna Freud (National Centre for Children and Families)



It’s too early to say what the full impact of coronavirus will be on children and young people’s mental health, but the signs are that it will be significant.

We want to support children and young people and their families and to work together to minimise this impact. That’s why we are sharing information and advice.

Advice for parents and carers - NSPCC


 Parenting can be rewarding, but it can also be challenging. We've got parenting tips for all stages of your child's life, as well as advice on how to deal with difficult situations.

 Advice for parents and carers - Young Minds


We know parenting isn’t always easy. Although it’s often amazing and rewarding to watch your children grow up, and to help them learn to be independent, it can also be really hard work. It can feel especially hard if your child's mood and behaviour seem different and you're not sure why, or what you can do to help. But you are not alone.

Young Minds have lots of practical advice and tips on supporting your child - from how to encourage your child to open up about their feelings to dealing with mental health services. No matter what you and your child are going through, things can get better.
