We all have mental health, just like we all have physical health. It’s about how we think, feel and act. Sometimes we feel well, and sometimes we don’t.

The following resources focus on the importance of adolescent mental health. Each resource explains what each topic means and why it’s important for you to consider as parents and carers, as well as top tips and signposting to information that can help you and your adolescent child.
