How can I help my child?

The COPMI national initiative, Australia, 2014

This guide was originally produced for use by professionals when supporting parents with mental illness and their families. It is intended to help provide parents with time to think about being a parent living with mental illness, and to help them find practical ways to strengthen the social and emotional wellbeing of their children and family.

The content was produced alongside parents with a lived experience of mental illness, their families and supporters. It is helpful for parents to read and talk through the boolet with a partner, a family member, a trusted friend or a mental health professional.
