The message below comes from DBSA National Headquarters:
Going back to school can stir up all sorts of emotions for children and teens.
Help the child in your life feel confident and prepared for their return to the classroom with DBSA’s free back-to-school toolkit.
In the toolkit, you’ll find:
- Activities with The Mood Crew designed to help younger kids identify and manage emotions.
- A new resource detailing the connection between childhood trauma and mental health.
- Ways to get involved with the Parent and Caregiver Network, our support network for those caring for children and teens living with depression or bipolar disorder.
- Helpful information on supporting children or teens experiencing depression, bipolar disorder, or other mental health symptoms.
