Does anyone have any good advice on how to talk to kids about mental health?

I want it to be an open and approachable topic as mental health issues do run through our family.

Thanks!

We have this book which was really helpful as a starting point with ds

www.amazon.co.uk/Scrambled-Heads-Childrens-Mental-Health/dp/1911357263?tag=mumsnetforum-21

I think just having an open environment where children know they can talk about anything is a good start

I always just talk to my kids about any subject the same as I would talk to anyone. Start the conversation, let them ask questions.
