So your child is turning 18?

The support on offer from key service providers changes significantly when young people officially enter adulthood.

Whilst the support from adult services will have the young person at its centre, carers support is available through Leeds Carers Centre who give advice and support on being a carer of someone with mental health difficulties. Adult services also provide family therapy for those families who wish to use a family approach to resolve their difficulties.

If your child has experienced a mental health crisis, it can be helpful for you to have a crisis plan which can include advice on how to get help in a crisis and what services are available in the adult sector.
