If you have a parent or a brother or sister who has a mental illness, we can help by giving you support, information and ideas to find practical ways to overcome some of the difficulties of dealing with this complicated situation.
We can also try to answer some of the questions you may have about mental illness and suggest ways that you and your family can help protect yourselves from the effects of mental illness.
We’ve developed projects and made films where doctors, and other professionals, explain to children and young people what mental illness is and how it can be caused. Studies have shown that the more a child understands what is happening to someone who is mentally ill, the more protection they themselves have from the effects of the illness.
