Mental Health and Wellbeing

Mental Health and the Coronavirus

Here are two helpful articles about managing mental health during this 2021 lockdown

Obviously, things feel somewhat unsettled at the moment and we know that young people with anxiety issues are going to be challenged more than usual. You might find the following links helpful.

The next two are from the Anna Freud Schools in Mind site:

* Services Directory showing support in your area: ( for young people who are struggling.
* Self-care directory (scroll down the page until you reach the picture squares) ( detailing lots of activities that help you keep mentally well.

This has some really good resources for students if they are suffering from anxiety, mental health or well-being issues. Some have been made free during Covid 19. There are over 20 apps for a variety of things. (

Of course, school is always happy to help children talk about their mental health and signpost to professionals when necessary.
