WORRIES ABOUT COVID

WORRIES ABOUT COVID-19

The past year has unquestionably been a year like no other. Health concerns, home-learning difficulties, feelings of isolation and break-downs in children's normal support networks are likely to  lead to an increase in children's mental health issues across the country. The links below talk about these issues and more, whilst offering some advice on how to help promote your child's resilience and keep mentally healthy during this period and beyond.
