Information for Parents and Mentors
Various professionals were involved in its development, such as Educational psychologists, Psychologists, Psychiatrists and General Practitioners. See the new manual for how to use
Also we asked teenagers from a number of schools and colleges to help with the design and content.
It is not meant to be a complete alternative to teenagers talking to someone else, such as an adult, teenage friend, or professional. We would always encourage teenagers to seek advice if they are having problems. The site may be a first step in this process.
The site uses a self-directed active learning approach, getting teenagers to think for themselves, communicate clearly with you and other adults, their friends and teachers.
For more severe problems, we recommend teenagers seek help from primary care services first.
This could be from general practitioners, or primary healthcare workers (health phone lines, nurses, drop in centres, accident and emergency services.
Or help could come from contact with other services such as social services, teachers, or non-government organisations (connexions in the UK). These services may then recommend more specialist services such as educational psychologists, clinical psychologists or psychiatrists.
