Best For You

For parents or carers

One in six children and young people in the UK are experiencing a clinically significant mental illness, and even more are struggling with difficult thoughts or feelings. As parents and carers, we want to help – but it can be hard to know where to start.

Best For You is here to remind you that you’re not alone and make it easier for your family to access the support that’s right for you. We’ve put together digital resources that you can access immediately, as well as information about the other support available in North West London.

Mental health conditions

Learning more about mental health problems can help people understand their thoughts and feelings. Young people don’t need to be diagnosed with a mental health condition to get support through Best For You.
