HOW CAN I SUPPORT MY CHILD WITH SAFEUT?

 

Encourage your child to talk about their emotions and let them know that the app is available to support them. Listen to their concerns about school issues. If your child feels anyone’s safety or mental well-being is threatened, suggest using the app to submit a tip.

TALKING WITH MY CHILD

 

The most important resource for your child’s mental health is you. SafeUT can offer a listening ear and qualified support in times of crisis, but no one can truly replace the influence of a loving parent.

It starts with honest, open conversations with your child about topics like mental health and conflict resolution. If you need a little guidance or a few talking points, the “Conversation Starters” PDF can help.
