This programme, Supporting Parents to Support Their Children’s Mental Health and Wellbeing, supports parents to encourage and promote positive mental health and wellbeing in their children. The programme also explores how building resilience in children helps them to manage and cope with the day-to-day stresses of life as they occur.

Parents who attend this session will: 

  • Explore the factors that influence mental health and wellbeing in their child
  • Learn how to build and nurture resilience within their own child
  • Be given tips on how best to support positive mental health and wellbeing in their child.
