BOOKS FOR CHILDREN
Learning to understand through stories can be really empowering. This link takes you to a range of books to support wellbeing and mental health.
Promoting children and young people’s wellbeing is a key part of keeping them safe, helping them develop and ensuring they have positive outcomes into adulthood.
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.
They also have our Parents Helpline who can provide advice and support if you're worried about a child or young person.
A website offering support to help parents/carers answer questions from their children and to support family wellbeing.

Encouraging and guiding a child to think about their own mental health and wellbeing are vital skills you can teach them from a young age.
