Supporting Your Child

We've put together a Support Pack filled with advice and guidance so you can empower your child on their mental health and well-being journey.

What Is Mental Health?

Every child is unique and mental health difficulties can present in many ways. Recognising the unique needs of neurodiverse children is fundamental in supporting their mental well-being, and influencing their emotional, social, and cognitive development.

How To Support Your Child

Creating a supportive and nurturing environment, promoting open communication, and fostering strong connections with you, their friends and teachers are key components in promoting positive mental health outcomes for children.

What Are The Signs?

Children may show various responses to mental health challenges, such as anxiety, depression, social withdrawal, anger, and low resilience. Physical symptoms like headaches, fatigue, digestive problems, insomnia, restlessness, and difficulty concentrating may also arise. 

Exploring Mindfulness

Mindfulness is an exercise that is practiced to make you feel fully present and engaged in the current moment. It involves paying attention to your thoughts and feelings without judgment, accepting them as they are, and feeling more in-tune with your body, breathe and the environment.
