Well-known presenters including Gary Lineker, Myleene Klass, and Tanni Grey-Thompson are helping raise awareness for This May Help - a new national initiative providing mental health advice to parents and carers being launched by Bradford District and Craven Health and Care Partnership.

The website gives easy-to-follow advice to help families manage their child’s mental health (short advice films and downloadable advice). This advice has been developed by NHS professionals and parents who’ve been through their own child’s mental health journey. Parents and carers have shared advice that helped them and that may also help other families.

Professionals who work with children are also being encouraged to use the website.

The advice covered on This May Help includes self-harm, gaming & online activity, teenagers’ safety, eating disorders, school avoidance, understanding mental health, understanding teenagers, online threats, building rapport, building resilience, building a support network, self-care tips (for parents), managing an emergency, managing in a crisis, and preparing for a children and adolescent mental health services (CAMHS) appointment.

These subjects were chosen by families and young people who have gone through their own mental health challenges.
