Talking to primary school age children about parental mental illness

An Australian organisation with a factsheet on helping parents talk to children about their mental health.

Wherever possible, we have identified and included resources from the UK. However, some are from non-UK organisations. These have been through the same quality assurance process and have been included as the content is still valid and useful. If you would like to suggest a UK alternative, please let us know.
