Psychoeducation for children, young people, carers and parents

 

These short films can help clients learn about wellbeing. They share learnings about mild to moderate mental health concerns including low mood, worry and self esteem.

In addition, there are three specialist explainers: one on sleep and two on secondary transition for parents/ carers and for young people respectively. We all have mental health and YMM hopes that learning about what it is will help to build and sustain resilience, minimise distress and scaffold how to re-engage with life for children, young people and their parents/ carers.

You might want to share these films on YMM chat, with schools, parents or young people you meet. Clients might benefit from the empowerment of learning independently outside of a session.
