Talking to Your Child About Mental Health
Time To Change have launched a new major campaign, funded by the Department of Health, to reduce mental health stigma among teens and parents. One in ten young people will experience a mental health problem - that’s three in every classroom. But Time to Change's research shows that over half (55%) of parents in England have never spoken to their children about the topic of mental health.
We know that for many people, talking mental health with your son or daughter might feel like a tricky topic. But conversations about it come in many forms, and showing you’d be open to that conversation means they will be more likely to come to you should they experience a mental health problem - directly or through seeing a friend go through it.
Time to Change have plenty of resources to help you start your conversation including advertising to reach 14-18 year olds and their parents.
