These pages are a catalogue of some of the useful sources of help available for parents or students looking to explore mental health issues.
Recent Parent Workshops from the Emotional Wellbeing Service are available at the bottom of this page:

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. The modules are all designed to be self-guided and can be completed independently by pupils from home. https://education.stem4.org.uk/
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.
As a first port of call we would recommend:
A site dedicated to providing expert advice for parents on a wide variety of issues, from bullying, to eating disorders, depression, risky behaviour and parenting.
MindEd for Families was built by parents and the MindEd Consortium of professionals, funded by the Department of Education, in partnership with Health Education England. It is accredited by the NHS Information Standard. http://minded.e-lfh.org.uk/families/index.htm
