    Help! I am new to this forum and this is my first post.

    I am seeking any resources that can help build understanding and resilience in young children who witness extreme behaviour from a familiar adult who is diagnosed with a mental health condition. I work in a number of overlapping community groups and want to share any resources recommended with the teams supporting these children. Although I have created an account with Beyond Blue, there may be other organisations that could support this query also?

    Hi Davina Warrior,

    You might find some great resources if you approach Headspace, Kids Helpline and Reachout Forums (Parent's site) at https://parents.au.reachout.com/. These services can give you a perspective that is direct from the child's point of view. You may also want to contact Relationships Australia as they support with healthy relationships.
