How can I help my child cope with mental illness? You will play an important role in supporting your child's treatment plan. To care for yourself and your child: • Learn about the illness. • Consider family counseling that treats all members as partners in the treatment plan. • Ask your child's mental health professional for advice on how to respond to your child and handle difficult behavior. • Enroll in parent training programs, particularly those designed for parents of children with a mental illness. • Explore stress management techniques to help you respond calmly. • Seek ways to relax and have fun with your child. • Praise your child's strengths and abilities. • Work with your child's school to secure necessary support.

Early years settings including childminders remain open, and you can continue to use these as normal. You can access other childcare activities (including wraparound care) where reasonably necessary to enable parents to work, seek work, attend education or training.
