It can be difficult for parents and carers to recognise when a child or young adult is struggling with a mental illness. This brochure, developed by Kooth’s clinical team, will help you better understand and be aware of the warning signs of mental illness in young people as well as signposting you to organisations that can provide support. You will also find practical tips on how best to support your child’s mental and emotional health and advice for starting a conversation with a young person about their mental health.
This booklet aims to bring together the different information and advice offers across Coventry and Warwickshire. It has been co-produced, bringing together professionals from different organisations, neurodivergent people and their families. It provides useful information about services and support available for those who are diagnosed or who self-identify as neurodivergent and those who care and support them.
This is version one of the booklet, we would welcome any feedback to enhance the booklet. Please send any comments to firstname.lastname@example.org
This topic covers advice to parents themselves rather than to professionals engaging with the system. It includes helping a child to cope in today’s pushy world, helping a child to build friendships and deal with bullying, and identify different ways to support your child to be resilient.
