My child has experienced mental health problems in the past. Should they do the course?

Some young people with a history of mental health problems feel that this course will be too upsetting to be involved in. Others will want to be involved.

We strongly recommend that you discuss with your child what they feel most comfortable doing, but don’t make the decision for them. They also need to be aware that if they begin to feel upset during the course, they are free to leave and follow up with their counsellor or student welfare coordinator.

However, if your child is currently experiencing high levels of distress and is receiving mental health care, you should discuss it with their mental health professional.
