Resources for Parents/Carers of Anxious Students

Attached is information on some fantastic resources which have been developed by the CAMHS Early Intervention Team to help parents to support their child or teenager with anxiety.

The supports available include-

  • Access to recorded two part information session webinars- Understanding Anxiety and Supporting your child with anxiety. These are also available in BSL.
  • Access to two online module courses for parents based on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)- Supporting your Child with Anxiety and Supporting your Teenager with Anxiety. Both courses allow parents to work through the course at their own pace, they are most suitable for parents looking to support their young person with worry and anxiety, while learning helpful strategies to manage their own anxieties. These modules are available via the platform Silvercloud. Sign up is free using the access code Lothian.
  • Information on some great apps which are available for free across NHS Scotland for people 16+ on Sleep and Anxiety, and other useful websites and books.
  • A link to the adult mental health website – Home – Wellbeing Lothian

If you require any information on the resources please get in touch with DGS Pupil Support.
