New guide to mental health for Peer Supporters
Our Amazing Futures interns in East Sussex have created a brilliant guide to mental health for the young people who volunteer as Peer Supporters with the project. And even if you are not a volunteer or a young person, it’s a great resource for anyone wanting to know more about supporting young people’s mental health.
The handbook is written in simple, accessible language with lots of illustrations and includes:
- Information and statistics around mental health in young people with additional needs
- What you can do to help a young person with their mental health
- What to do if you don’t know what to say
- What to do if you are worried about a young person
- How mental health problems can look
- How to look after your own mental health
- Services that can help
