Parents & Guardians

“In order for parents and teachers to look after their child’s emotional health, they need to be able to look after their own.  Having good emotional health and strong psychological resilience helps you enjoy the good and difficult aspects of parenting.  There are skills that parents can practice at home that will improve their own wellbeing and, in turn, their child’s emotional health.”  - Paul Gilligan, CEO of St Patrick’s Mental Health Services (2016)
