Kate Stammers, clinical lead for Sussex Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS), said: "These workshops are a vital tool in helping parents and carers understand their children's mental health and what they can do to support them.

We recognise the impact of the pandemic on children and young people's mental health and these workshops will help give some clarity to families who may be unsure as to how to handle certain situations."

Each workshop is accessible with subtitles and gives an overview of a specific difficulty and also some hints and tips on how young people can be supported.

There are also links to some resources that parents may find helpful, either while their young person is waiting to see CAMHS, or as an alternative to CAMHS.
