Mental Health and Wellbeing Support

The mental health advice in these films is practical. These are things you can do that can help to improve the situation you may be in.

The films were developed by parents, carers and service users who got together to share their own experiences. They spoke to experts by experience, service and ex-service users, community mental health nurses, Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) doctors and qualified professionals to work out the best and most helpful practical advice possible.

Managing Emotions and Behaviour at Home 

In an uncertain world, it is completely normal for adults and children to feel anxious and worried when they don’t know what is going to happen next.

When we feel anxious we tend to behave differently. For kids, this is likely to mean more anger , more frustration, more boredom and more outbursts.

During highly stressful times, family life can be challenging. It can look like bored children climbing the walls, parental frustration – and plenty of arguments in for good measure!

As staff with our own children at home, we can sympathise with how hard it is at the minute and have found some of the suggestions in ‘9 tips for helping your child manage their emotions and behaviour at home‘ really useful, so we thought we would share it with you 🙂
