Promoting better outcomes for children andfamilies where a parent experiences mental illness.
Young people explain to others what mental illness is and how to understand symptoms a parent may experience.
If your parent experiences mental illness, it's normal for you to have all kinds of different feelings.
It might be hard to know how to cope with your parent or understand why they act the way they do. This can leave you feeling angry, stressed and helpless...and a whole lot of other things!
In this section of the website you can find out about mental illness and how to get help if you need it.
