Children & Teenagers - Young ARAFMI

Download Our Young ARAFMI Brochure

Many children and young people live in families where someone is affected by a mental illness.

Children and teenagers who have a relative affected by mental health illness have told us that at times they feel worried and mixed up, sometimes embarrassed, guilty, or sad and angry about why this has happened in their family. These are normal feelings to have all people at times have different sorts of feelings about what is happening in their life. It is important to know that you are not alone there are other children and young people experiencing a life similar to yours. Young ARAFMI gives you the opportunity to connect with others your age who are living in similar situations.
