Need immediate help?

Need further help?

If it is life-threatening emergency - call the emergency services.

If the risk is not immediately life threatening  Follow the instructions on this landbot - it will calm you - help you collect your thoughts and allow you time to make decisions about helping your child in the immediate situation. Doing this activity will role model the calmness and control you want your teenager to learn.

When this crisis is over, get in touch with LOHA - we can support you to help your teenager through their mental health problems.

Who we are

Our backgrounds come from family therapy, psychiatry, research, education, design, technology and business. The methods we have designed are widely used in family therapy, which is fully backed by science and evidence.

All of our clinicians are highly trained and have worked with families in many different situations and settings over 30+ years.

We do this by sharing our knowledge and skills with parents and carers so that they feel empowered to help their children when they can not get help anywhere else and we deliver this digitally so we can reach as many families as possible in this time of great need.
