We know it’s often difficult for schools to identify or know how to support students who live with a parent who has a mental health difficulty or mental illness. So we’ve designed a suite of interactive, creative packages that will enable you to promote a positive school culture around mental health. It’s designed to help all young people build resilience, support each other and know when to ask for help.
We provide staff with easy-to-follow guides, a range of in-person and digital resources, and training – all designed to build confidence and skills, and produced in collaboration with teachers, young people and health professionals. Our goal isn’t for staff to become therapists or counsellors, but to use what they already know, supported by our resources, to create an environment where stigma is reduced, students’ well-being is improved, and those with an unwell parent are able to come forward without feeling singled out.
