Looking after Yourself
Family concerns can be challenging for everyone. While you are dealing with your child or teen’s concerns, be sure to also look after your own health needs – get enough rest, eat healthy foods, and maintain your own supports as you move through the process of getting help for your child or teen.
Remember that being healthy means that you can devote more time to being patient and supportive. If you also need support, you can follow the same steps recommended for getting help for your child or teen – ask your family physician, nurse or other health care provider for any support you may need at this time.
