Parent and Carer resources

These Place2Be resources can help parents and carers to support the emotional wellbeing and mental health of their children and young people.

  • What is counselling for children?
    Most of us are familiar with the idea of counselling - talking to a professional with the aim of enhancing your wellbeing - but how does it apply to children, particularly those who might be too young to be able to easily put their feelings into words?

  • Supporting your child's mental health
    It's never too early or too late to start thinking about your child's mental health, and how as a parent, you have a hugely important role in helping them to develop their ability to cope with life's challenges as they grow.

  • Worried about your child's mental health?
    If you think your child is troubled about something or may have a mental health issue, the most important thing to remember is not to panic.

  • Getting ready to start primary school
    Starting primary school is an important step which can be both exciting and a little bit scary for you and your child. 

    As parents and carers, preparing for this change and making sure that your child has a good start at school can feel difficult, but there are many ways in which we can help our children – and ourselves – feel ready.
