Welcome to Healthier Minds

If you are reading this it is likely that you are interested in or worried about your child’s mental wellbeing and what you can do to support them.  Healthier Minds – A Guide for Parents and Carers brings together information and practical advice that we think you will find helpful when supporting your child to manage life’s challenges. It includes information about how low mood, anxiety and stress can affect us, how to develop resilience, and looks at ways of developing strategies with your child to help them manage and feel a bit better. There is also information about relevant local services in East Renfrewshire, and the different roles that professionals can have in supporting children, young people and families who are experiencing more chronic and severe mental health needs.
