Mental Health Foundation

The Mental Health Foundation offers information and advice on their website around all areas of Mental Health including support for parents and their own mental health.

“When a parent becomes mentally unwell, it can be difficult for them to explain to their child what is happening and for the child to make sense of their parent’s behaviour.

Parents and children or young people often feel isolated and unsupported when the parent is unwell, which can increase distress and anxiety across the family. It is important that mental health and social services support both the parent and their child.”
