NHS's Top 5 Tips for supporting children and young people's mental wellbeing


1.  Be there to listen

     Ask the children and young people you look after how they are doing regularly so they get used to speaking about their feelings.


2. Stay involved in their life

    Show interest in their life and the things that are important to them.


3. Support positive routines

    Be a positive role model and support positive behaviours including regular bedtime routines, healthy eating and getting active.


4. Encourage their interests

    Being active, crative, learning things and being a part of a team are all good for mental health.  Support children and young people to explore

    their interests


5. Take what they say seriously

    Help the children and young people you look after feel valued in what they say and help them work through difficult emotions.
