Resources for Parents

We know that an important way in which schools and colleges can support pupils is by working together with parents and carers, and sharing information about how they can help support and promote good mental health for their children.

To help schools and colleges with this, we have begun to develop a range of video and written resources that take some of the key ideas from our schools training and present them in ways that parents and carers can use at home. 

We hope that you will find the resources below helpful and will share them widely in your school community. We would love to hear feedback and what you and your parents and carers think.

Understanding Mental Health

The video below features Stacey from our team talking through some ways in which we can better understand mental health in ourselves and our children, and what kinds of things affect our mental health.

Promoting Resilience

The video below features Anna from our team outlining what resilience and resiliency skills are, and talking through a model of resilience and how parents could improve resiliency skills in their child.

We have also written a handout to accompany the video with some ‘top tips’ that parents and carers can try to support their child. You can view and download this here.
