About our information


Online resources


We provide online information to frontline workers, parents and carers:

Our useful links section has links to many other websites on a range of mental health topics.
We regularly add current mental health news items to our news page.
The HandsOnScotland toolkit was developed by the Institute. It gives practical information, tools and activities to respond helpfully to troubling behaviour and to help children and young people to flourish.
