Hidden health – a parent-led card and toolkit


Audience: parents

Parents from Alder Hey Children’s Hospital worked with RCPCH &Us to look at three elements of being “hidden”: children and young people with a hidden condition or illness; hidden family carers providing support; hidden support services such as forums. Their toolkit for parents helps raise awareness of conditions, support services and what makes them or their child a warrior.

Hidden health includes long term conditions, such as epilepsy and asthma, and hidden conditions, such as mental health needs and heart conditions – and the impact on the health of the carer, whether a sibling, parent or other family member.
