Mental Health for Families
Please see the documents and links to helpful videos aimed at supporting mental health and wellbeing for you and your family.
Resources for Parents
We know that an important way in which schools and colleges can support pupils is by working together with parents and carers, and sharing information about how they can help support and promote good mental health for their children.
Lancashire County Council has commissioned and funded Lancashire Emotional Health in School and Colleges and a range of videos and written resources have been developed that take some of the key ideas from our schools training and present them in ways that parents and carers can use at home.
VIDEO: Understanding Mental Health This video features Stacey talking through some ways in which we can better understand mental health in ourselves and our children, and what kinds of things affect our mental health. We hope that you will find the resources below helpful parent and pupil feedback is welcome.
VIDEO: Promoting Resilience The video features Anna outlining what resilience and resiliency skills are, and talking through a model of resilience and how parents could improve resiliency skills in their child.
There is also a written handout to accompany the videos with some ‘top tips’ that parents and carers can try to support their child. You can view and download this here.
