FREE Mental Health Guide for Parents
Mental health is part of everybody’s life. It is as much a part of your overall health as physical health. Being a young person can be tough – there is so much to learn and a lot of changes to deal with particularly around the transition to independent adulthood. Adolescence is often the time when signs and symptoms of mental illness can start to appear.
Project Peaceful Mind is kindly supported by Neami National. Please check out this resource which also includes important helpline numbers.
