Why is it hard to talk about mental health problems?


Audience: children and young people, parents, healthcare professionals

This guide for children and young people explores why it can be hard to open up about mental health problems. Using a mixture of videos and some interactive visual content, it explains what mental health problems are and offers advice on what to do if you think you are experiencing a mental health problem.

There is also a section with links for further relevant reading and resources.

The guide can be recommended to a child or young person who may be showing signs that they are experiencing a mental health problem but are reluctant to talk about it.
