Each year, about Just over 20 percent or 1 in 5 of children, either currently or at some point during their life, have had a seriously debilitating mental disorder. As much as we want to shield our kids from confusion or concern, health professionals recommend educating children and teenagers about mental illness. When they receive the correct information, it helps dispel common misconceptions and stigma, and provides them with the knowledge and resources they need to understand a particular illness and why they or someone they know might struggle. Curious how to tackle the topic with your own kids? Start with reading. Sadness is part of the human condition that should never be dismissed.
Listed below are some books that may be helpful in explaining the mental illness of a parent or other adult to young children. Many do not actually specify mental illness. Instead they use analogies children can easily understand. This book provides clinically sound and age-appropriate information for children, answering questions about the borderline personality disorder of a parent, and suggesting ways to cope with the difficult situations. The wonderful illustrations help with the understanding, and lighten the story with humour.
