Mental Health and Wellbeing

We understand that managing change and transition can be difficult and may have an influence on our mental health and wellbeing. Please see the poster below for some top tips on looking after our mental health when experiencing change and transition. We hope you find this useful on your return to school after the summer holidays.

Supporting Parents Helpfinder (Young Minds)

Times are tough for many people right now. Parents find themselves pulled in many different directions and children may be struggling being in the house for so much longer than usual.

A mixture of concern about COVID-19, working from home and children being at home, along with a possible financial impact, can make for a stressful household.

Young Minds have created a useful 'Supporting Parents Helpfinder'. By answering six questions, parents can find out how to support their child's mental health during the pandemic, and beyond.

Find the help finder here:


Young Minds have also created this useful poster highlighting ways to give support to children when they have angry feelings or outbursts and may help families start a conversation and talk about each other’s feelings.
