We’re leading the fight for a future where all young minds are supported and empowered, whatever the challenges.
We’re leading the fight for a future where all young minds are supported and empowered, whatever the challenges. We’re here to make sure they get the best possible mental health support and have the resilience to overcome life’s difficulties.
The crisis in children and young people’s mental health is real and it is urgent. More children and young people than ever before are reaching out for help with their mental health. But for those who take that brave step, help is much too hard to find.
Together, we are changing this.
Our Parents Helpline is available to offer advice to anyone worried about a child or young person under 25.
You may have questions about a child’s behaviour, emotional wellbeing, or mental health condition. You may have a child who’s already been admitted to CAMHS and have questions about their treatment or want to know what to say to your GP when you visit them.
Our trained advisers are here to give you help and advice, whatever the question.
Under 25? Our helpline is there for parents, but there’s plenty of help and support for young people too whether it’s our expert guides or the various organisations and helplines we work with. Find out where to get help.
What happens when you call the Parents Helpline?
You’ll get through to a trained adviser who will talk through the problem and listen to your concerns and questions in complete confidence.
Your adviser will help you to understand your child’s behaviour and give you practical advice on where to go next.
If you need further help, they’ll refer you to one of our specialists whether it's a psychotherapist, psychiatrist, psychologist or mental health nurse. They’ll arrange a phone consultation within 7 days.”
