Mental Health & Wellbeing

We hope you find this page a useful place for supporting mental health and wellbeing. 

The links below provide advice and resources for supporting adults, children and young people.

This is for parents and carers who are feeling anxious or distressed themselves in the current climate, and/or are supporting children who need support with their wellbeing. It is also for parents and carers who want to ensure they keep their children's wellbeing as high as possible given that children are coping with so many sudden changes.  Click here

This advice was produced by the British psychology society in response to the UK Government’s announcement of school closures as part of the response to Coronavirus. As the situation continues to develop, guidance may be updated.  Click here
