Mental Health Toolkit for Young Carers

The Princess Royal Trust for Carers, Young Carers Mental Health Toolkit is now available online for anyone working with young carers.  The toolkit was developed in direct response to worker requests for more resources around promoting positive mental health and wellbeing.  The toolkit also addresses requests made by young carers for more information and help in dealing with emergency situations and building support.  The toolkit was developed by Young Carers Mental Health Development Coordinator from Princess Royal Trust for Carers, in partnership with Scottish Young Carers Services Alliance and funded by The Scottish Government. You can access the toolkit here.

 Alternatively it can be found on click on Professionals page and then on subheading Health and follow the links to the toolkit.
