What Happens Next?!


A handbook for parents, caregivers and family/whanau of young people who have a mental illness

This is a very practical, supportive and informative handbook for parents, carers and other family members who are looking after and supporting a teenager or young adult with a serious mental illness. Parents and family members regularly feel not only overwhelmed by their child’s situation and its consequences, but frustrated that information to help them manage whatever comes next is very hard to find. This makes their journey extra diffi cult. What Happens Next?! has been co-written by two Wellington parents who have supported their young adult children through mental health challenges. Wendy Lyons found her daughter’s illness thrust her, her husband and her family into intense and traumatic times. Suddenly left caring for a child whose condition was high risk, often scary and unpredictable, Wendy couldn’t believe the lack of information available. She linked with a range of other parents and began to gather their experiences and input for a handbook that others could use. Linking up with the experience of Skylight’s Tricia Irving
Hendry, and using Skylight’s expertise and AXA Hearts in Action support, this new handbook is now made available to help, encourage and inform others in this unique and demanding situation.
