All these resources provide information and support either based on evidence and/or subject to continuing evaluation. They are put forward for your interest, and I am not suggesting they be used in place of therapy.
The first resource below, Smiling Mind provides an easy and convenient way to practice mindful meditation. MoodGym and Brave are both provide on line self-help strategies. It looks like MoodGym is undergoing some changes and it is unclear whether it will remain free in the future. The Brave program can be done in collaboration with your child's psychologist.
Reach and Beyond Blue have a wide range of information on mental health in young people. Reach has a new parent forum where you can ask questions and someone will read and respond - both other forum members and a facilitator.
None of these are substitutes for professional support, but can be a good starting point if you have specific questions you would like answered.
