Reduce your child’s risk of depression & clinical anxiety

Strategies for parents of primary-school aged children

The University of Melbourne, with funding from beyondblue, has developed new guidelines for parents to reduce the risk of their children developing depression or anxiety.

How to reduce your child’s risk of depression and clinical anxiety: Strategies for parents of primary-school aged children is a general set of recommendations that may also be useful for parents whose child is already experiencing some symptoms of depression or anxiety. The University of Melbourne and beyondblue recognise that each family is unique, and so parents may need to adapt these strategies to their specific situation.
