Kelty Mental Health: Families, Together: Supporting the Mental Well-being of Children and Youth


This gentle, approachable video from Kelty Mental Health emphasizes the good success rate in treating mental health issues in teenagers. It encourages parents to act on their intuitions and concerns in response to changes in their teen’s behaviour, to make contact with health professionals, and to seek advice and support. The video comes with a discussion guide and subtitles in 6 languages. The examples are drawn from a variety of cultures and address the complications for parents in identifying mental health issues for their teenager when there are other factors involved as well, such as grief or adjustment to a new country and language.
