Abstract

This book is for any parent or carer who is at all concerned about the mental health of their child. It is written by young people who have themselves experienced mental health issues, with a little help from a couple of adult friends. It is designed to give parents and carers insight into how young people themselves see their world and the problems they experience. We hope it will help you feel better equipped to offer a safe, supportive environment so that you can fully support your child and their emotional wellbeing. Often parents think they know what young people think, but this book might give you a few surprises about what young people think could help them. If you can get your head around this, it might help improve tricky situations facing you at home.
