Parentline NI

As we fast approach the one year anniversary of the first COVID-19 lockdown, it is no wonder that many parents are concerned about the future mental health impact of the ongoing pandemic on our children and young people.

So, what can we do, as parents, to help safeguard our children against mental health risks? 

How do we talk to our children about topics like anxiety, depression or even suicide? 

And where do we turn to, if we need extra help?

For some answers to all of these questions and more, our host, Roger Gowdy, recently chatted to Professor Siobhan O’Neill, Mental Health Champion for Northern Ireland.

Don't forget you can call our free confidential helpline at Parentline NI, on 0808 8020 400, if you need advice, support or guidance on any parenting issue.
