How we can support a parent whose child is struggling with mental health, behavioural, or addiction challenges:

Support them in resiliency and competency building
Help them to understand their child’s concerning behaviours and diagnosis
Assist parents in finding resources and support services
Provide parents with support and strategies for coping with life’s stressors
And help them to best partner with their child’s educators to support their child’s learning and wellbeing

To realize the full benefits of caregiving, it is crucial that caregivers have access to the information and supports they need to sustain their own wellbeing, and that their voices are recognized and respected in Canada’s mental health system. Failure to support caregivers undermines mental health across the entire population, leading to poorer outcomes, both for the people living with a mental illness and their caregivers. This also leads to increased health and social service costs.
