Friends and family
Raising sensitive issues and working to resolve problems that arise along the way can be challenging. It can also be hard as a parent to know the difference between normal behaviour, such as moodiness, irritability and withdrawal, and an emerging mental health problem. This section is designed to help you.
If you are a parent or carer for a young person aged 12 to 25 years who is currently receiving support from mental health professionals, we invite you to take part in our survey. The University of Canberra is currently conducting research into how young people's mental health impacts on parents and carers, and we appreciate your feedback.
