Coronavirus Guidance

Mental Health and Wellbeing 

As we all continue to help reduce the spread of the virus, by ensuring that we comply with the measures introduced on 23 March by HM Government to stay at home and away from others (i.e. social distancing — see the relevant link at the end of this document), it is important that we take time to ensure that we are looking after our own mental health and that of our loved ones.   

We have collated a range of resources and avenues for support to help parents and carers talk to their children about coronavirus. In addition, please take a look at published advice from Public Health England about looking after our mental health and wellbeing, and that of our families, while staying at home, as well as the advice and guidance provided from Place2Be, the children’s mental health charity that provides counselling and mental health support and training to UK schools.
