This May Help: Advice for supporting your child’s mental health
This May Help has been created to support parents and carers with concerns about their child’s mental health.
The subjects covered on this website have been chosen by families and young people who have gone through their own mental health challenges. What helped them may also help you.
The films offer advice across six main subject areas, with ten additional films offering supporting information. The films can be viewed in any order at any time.
Each film has a dedicated page where you’ll also find helpful advice and links to other resources. The text for each subject is available from the downloads page.

World Diabetes Day 2022
World Diabetes Day is on 14 November 2022
Will you help #RewriteTheStory?
Being diagnosed early is so important for all types of diabetes. It can save lives, prevent a medical emergency, and reduce the risk of life-changing complications later. That’s why we want to make sure everyone knows the signs to look out for – and knows their risk of developing type 2 diabtes.
Someone is diagnosed with diabetes every two minutes. Together, we have the power to #RewriteTheStory for everyone who will be diagnosed in the future – it could even be the story of someone you love.

Gateshead Mental Health Services
In December, we are going to bring all of the Gateshead Mental Health services together to discuss what is working well, what is not working so well and where we could make some improvements to areas that matter most to you. To help us start these conversations in December it would be fantastic if you can let us know what your thoughts are on mental health services and share your experiences, whether they are good, difficult or a mix of both. We will use the feedback you give us in a presentation in December to show case your thoughts, ideas, and experiences. It is really important for us to understand what is important to you.
This survey is designed to be completed by a young person or on behalf of a young person if support from a parent / carer / trusted adult is needed. As such, the questions are asked from the young person's perspective but may be answered by the parent / carer / trusted adult where required.
Your responses to this survey will be anonymous.
Any young person who you would like to take part in this survey please forward the above link.
Community Linking Project
Edberts House is all about empowering and connecting. Connecting us to one another; connecting us to support that we need and connecting our community and the services around us together more effectively, so we can make our area an even better place to live. Each community project is developed, planned and run by a group of local people who make decisions together. We encourage everyone to reach their full potential, providing facilities and activities that enrich our community life.
