Supporting Parents Helpfinder (Young Minds)

Times are tough for many people right now. Parents find themselves pulled in many different direction and children may be struggling being in the house for so much longer than usual.

A mixture of concern about covid, work from home and children at home, along with a possible financial impact make for a stressful household.

Young Minds have created a useful 'Supporting Parents Helpfinder'. By answering six questions, parents can find out how to support their child's mental health during the pandemic (and beyond).

Find the help finder here:

Child in Mind

Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families have produced a series of expert podcasts to help parents understand and manage child and family mental health problems called Child in Mind. They are available to find here: Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families
