Emotional wellbeing is often a complex issue. Trying to work out what’s going on or why things are the way they are can often be very difficult for any parent/carer.
Children and young people can have lots of different emotional health and wellbeing issues ranging from low mood, anxiety, unhealthy eating patterns or self-harming behaviour.
It is important children and young people better understand the issues they are facing and to develop appropriate skills which can enable them to cope better in the future. For example sometimes anxious thoughts and being angry are quite normal and healthy, but we need to recognise when these become a problem in daily life.
