Resources for Parents, Guardians and Caregivers
The Stigma-Free Society recognizes how difficult it can be for parents who are worried about their teen’s mental health. Look no further! In this section, parent(s) will find conversation cards that they can use to talk to their teens about mental wellbeing. They will also find a comprehensive Parent Resource Guide on how to get their teen help when they need it most as well as videos and links that will help parents support their teen’s mental health. It is always best to check in with teens first thing in the morning to ensure that they are feeling mentally well because having their mental health in check is imperative to tackle the rest of the day’s tasks.
Parents – We know that your youth have a lot questions about what is happening in the world around them right now with respect to COVID-19. We also know that sometimes it is difficult to know how to start these conversations.
Below you’ll find our “Conversation Cards” to help you kick-start your conversation with your child and hopefully answer the many, many questions they have.
To spark ‘Real Talk’ with parents/family members:
- Simply look at a card and read the question on the front.
- The other person offers a response.
- Then discuss the answer together.
