Situational Mutism Information Pack

This Situational Mutism (SM) Information Pack was co-produced following feedback from Birmingham and Solihull Parent Carers that there was little information about how to get support for children, young people and young adults with Situational Mutism.

This pack includes:

  • Information about Situational Mutism and how it presents
  • Feedback from young people on their experience of SM
  • Advice and guidance for professionals and parent/carers
  • Signposting to resources for young people, professionals and parent carers
