The Family Focus DVD helps you start the conversation with your child - because open family discussion has been proven to bolster family strength and build a child's resilience to developing mental health problems of their own.
What you SAY > The symptoms of depression or anxiety can influence how you think, feel, act and communicate.
What they HEAR > Other family members, particularly children, can be confused with what they see and hear. They might not understand what’s happening.
What you MEAN > You might be hesitant to mention your depression or anxiety but talking about it as a family can help everyone make sense of what’s going on.
We recommend you have sought or are seeking support from a health professional before watching Family Focus.
