Whatever your definition of a family is – whether you’re a parent, guardian, grandparent, a favourite uncle or an awesome auntie, life can chuck all sorts of stuff at you. And it’s ok to not have all the answers.
The new website ‘Healthy Families’ gives you the information, knowledge and confidence to support the wellbeing of the young people in your life – as well as promoting your own good mental health. Sadly, one in seven children aged 4-17 and ¼ of people aged 12-25 experience a mental health condition. This is why prevention, intervention and treatment of mental health conditions is important early in life so young people can learn skills to deal with life’s ups and downs.
