Resources for Adults:
Mental Health and Wellbeing is everybody’s business. In order for us to best support our children to be mentally healthy, we need to work with the entire community. On this page, you will find links to websites to help you to support your mental health and wellbeing.
We should all look after our mental health as well look after our physical health. Talking about our mental health and what keeps us mentally healthy is nothing to be embarrassed about. Talking about keeping mentally healthy will support our children to take care of their mental health and wellbeing as well.
Self-care is not selfish! In order for us to be able to support and care for others, we must first support and care for ourselves. This means spending time looking after our mental health and wellbeing. No one is able to pour from an empty cup! Make sure yours is full, so that you are in the best position to support your children to take care of their mental and emotional wellbeing.
The Hub of Hope allows you to select from a series of concerns, and then shows support near you.
