Children and young people

Understanding your child’s mental health can feel daunting, but you’re certainly not alone. It’s important to recognise that we all have mental health – whatever our age – and it’s critical that children and young people get the right support for their distress as early as possible. Whether you’re a parent or grandparent, a carer or family friend, we are here to help guide you to the most appropriate information and professional support to help you help your family.
