Children’s mental health

Good mental health allows us to cope with life’s ups and downs. If school is rubbish, you’re trying to figure out who you are and parents are stressing you out... then why wouldn’t you feel down about the world? But that’s really hard if it means you feel bad about yourself, lose confidence and can’t bounce back.

The #littlebluebookofsunshine explains some of the things you can do right now to feel better, or who to turn to if things feel too much. Download a copy to your phone from Apple books or Google Play books.

Mental health service coping guides

It can be a struggle to know which services to turn to when in need. 

So we have put together a list of local and national coping guides to help children and young people know which local services to go to for their mental health. 

What our coping guides offer

The guides list some of the best reliable and free sources of information and advice to help children and young people and their families to cope with life under lockdown and beyond.

The young person’s guide contains lots of useful self-help apps and websites and a range of resources, including local and national services to support young people with their mental health.
