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.
