Parents & Carers

Taking care of your mental health and well-being is important. We know that being a parent or carer can be challenging on a daily basis and we want you to know it is ok to ask for help from family, friends or other organisations that can all provide support when you need it.

Changes to your mental health can sometimes affect your children and their well-being. Children very quickly pick up on your anxiety or mood. It is important to say that you should not hide how you feel.
