When your parent has a mental illness

This booklet is for teenagers of parents who experience mental illness (aged 12 to 15 years and above). It helps young people to better understand their parent’s mental illness, answering common questions that they have.

The resource has been produced alongside professionals, parents and young people with a lived experience of a parent’s mental illness. Parents can choose to offer the guide to their children or practitioners can provide it to them when supporting parents and families.
