Wellbeing resource kit for parents

Please see the below link to the Every Mind Matters web based resource. This is aimed at parents, not only to help them to support their children and young people with wellbeing issues but also to help them seek guidance for themselves. It includes material on how to support children in their return to school and signs to look for in relation to their child's mental health and wellbeing, particularly in the context of Covid-19.

Children returning to school

We realise that your child may be anxious about returning to school. Please have a look at the booklet below which will hopefully ease some of their fears and help them to understand what school will look like.
