  • Talking therapies

Having a family member in prison can create challenges for children and young people, which may affect their education, their behaviour and their physical and mental health. It’s important for young people to know that they are not alone, that the family are not guilty, and that they can talk to someone they trust about what is happening and how they are feeling. Parents, trusted adults and schools are well placed to provide support. Families Outside provides information on talking to children and young people about imprisonment and visiting a Scottish prison with your child.

We also provide links to some videos on our website that may help on starting the conversation about a family member's imprisonment.
