How do you raise a happy, resilient child?
How can you best support your kids when they struggle?
How should you approach their mental health ups and downs?

Dr Beth Mosley MBE is one of the UK’s most experienced and respected consultant clinical psychologists, and she works with children, young people and their families every day. In this groundbreaking guide, she shares the answers to the most commonly asked questions:
-What causes anxiety, and how can I control it?
- How do you broach difficult conversations with your child around subjects like low mood and self-harm?
- How can we support each other and communicate better?

Happy Families takes an honest and accessible approach to children’s mental health – arming parents and carers with the tools they need to tackle anxiety, low mood and difficult behaviours, as well as the hope and reassurance to actively make a change, with children (from ages 4 right up to 21).

With techniques based on cutting-edge science, evidence developed over twenty years of working in the NHS as well as her own experience as a mother of three, Dr Beth will help parents to make sense of what their child is going through - and show them how they help their children to survive and thrive.

When children are facing a mental health challenge, Dr Beth offers what all struggling parents need: an evidence-based road map to helping your child find themselves again. Happy Families is easy to read and compassionate, and packed full of practical strategies to empower parents. In a world that seems to be increasingly filled with danger and vitriol, we need books like this to help us stay on track.
The must-have, family handbook that deserves to be well thumbed and underlined. Accessible, equipping and game-changing.
Happy Families is the ultimate balance of psychological expertise and practical parenting advice - an essential guide to support our children’s mental health.
