These pages are a catalogue of some of the useful sources of help available for parents or students looking to explore mental health issues. The list is not exhaustive, there are a lot of other resources available online and in local libraries, and it is not an alternative to consulting your GP, which you should always do if you have serious concerns.
Head Ed Light is an online educational resource for students to learn about mental health topics independently. Head Ed Light contains 4 modules on anxiety, depression, resilience and self-harm, each containing quizzes, information & activities for students.
