Childhood Mental Health

Knowing that your child is struggling with their mental health can make us feel helpless and it is important to know where to turn. Many schools have access to counsellors but all have an assigned school nurse who can offer support in person or via text message support.

Teens in Crisis offer face to face or web-based support to children and young adults aged nine to 21 and their families.

Self-Harm is an umbrella term for behaviours that can cause injury or danger to yourself.
