Advice for parents and carers: talking mental health with young people at secondary school
A booklet for parents and carers with useful advice about how to talk to their older child about mental health.
As parents and carers, it can be hard to know whether your child’s feelings and behaviour are normal or becoming a problem.
This leaflet was developed by the Anna Freud Centre's child mental health experts and features an introduction form the Centre's Chief Executive, Professor Peter Fonagy.
It provides simple advice and guidance to parents and carers about how to make conversations about their child's feelings part of everyday conversation.
