Supporting your child - Resources and Links

The Education Authority continues to share a range of resources from different providers which aim to support young people and their parents / carers. 


Below is an overview of their recent resources.




DE teamed up with the PHA and the HSC to develop the Text-a-Nurse advice service for 11-19 year olds. Young people can seek advice about health issues without a face to face appointment on a range of issues including emotional health and wellbeing,  sexual health, and drugs and alcohol.
