Mental Health and Wellbeing

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: https://youngminds.org.uk/supporting-parents-helpfinder/

 

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.
