Facebook: A series of conversations with parents, for parents
We’ve had a lot of feedback lately around how COVID-19 has impacted the family and how young people’s routines and mental health have changed. Many family and friends of young people have asked us for help and guidance on how to navigate all of this. This series works through some of the questions you may have about how to better support your young person’s mental health. Each episode has a mix of clinical experts and real-life family members and friends, and we chat through the things that are important right now in supporting young people. We’d like to thank Facebook for their partnership and collaboration on this video series, and the opportunity to reach so many parents who are looking for support through this time.
