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.
