Mental health problems can be very damaging, affecting people in many ways. For children and young people, triggers can be issues such as eating disorders, self-esteem, bullying, life changes, behavioural problems, and others.
Knowing how to recognise and deal with them can be challenging for parents, carers and teaching staff, so getting good support and guidance can be hugely beneficial.
The charity Young Minds has a range of useful resources for parents, teachers, and young people. Their A-Z guide gives advice on how to help your child with their feelings and behaviour, as well as mental health conditions and life events.
