Dear All,

New Resources include:

  • relaxation booklet for children (attached)
  • Self Help Guide for parents on supporting their child with anxiety

As before it also links to:

  • It includes access to recorded information sessions – Parent’s Anxiety Workshop. These are also available in BSL.
  • We have access to Computerised CBT for parents on Supporting their Child/Teen with Anxiety via the platform Silvercloud– this is free to sign up using the access code and is unsupported.
    To date over 200 parents   have signed up since December 2021.
  • The poster highlights some great apps which are available for free across NHS Scotland through Big Health – Sleepio – CBT for insomnia, and Daylight – CBT for anxiety. However, these are recommended for 18+.
  • The poster also links to the adult mental health website – Home – Wellbeing Lothian
