MHACA is responding to an identified need in the community for better parent supports. We are working witha range of stakeholders to better understand the support needs of parents with teenagers in distress or experiencing a crisis.
Having a teenager in crisis can be an isolating experience and can impact on the whole of the family’s wellbeing.
It is important parents reach out and seek help for their own mental health. Share concerns with family and friends, share experiences with other parents, see your GP and consider a mental health care plan or check if your workplace has an Employee Assistance Program.
There are a range of online and local services available to provide support – download the Support For Parents With Teenagers in Crisis flyer here
