CHILDREN'S MENTAL HEALTH RESOURCES
We've had lots of first hand experience of supporting our children through mental health problems. We've found that NVR can help us maintain healthy family boundaries when everything feels confusing, and when over-accommodating can be a huge temptation. We've gathered some online resources that might be useful to you, and some that you might want to share with your children - if they're interested and receptive. NVR is being used in lots of mental health settings and we've included some articles that you might find interesting! To get back to where you were, click here.

BOOKS ABOUT CHILDREN'S MENTAL HEALTH
This fantastic book explains different anxiety presentations in children and unpicks the typical treatment approaches in detail.
The authors outline the SPACE approach - Supporting Parents of Anxious Childhood Emotions - step by step.
The authors provide lots of food for thought, together with clear strategies, for parents of highly anxious children to ensure healthy family boundaries and to make sure the needs of all family members are met.
We would recommend this book to parents with high anxiety and need a lot of support, as well as parents of young adults who are struggling to move towards culturally appropriate independence.
