Mental health, well-being and anxiety

The NSPCC has created a new webpage with information and advice for parents or carers who are worried that a child or young person may be struggling with their mental health or has anxiety about coronavirus. The webpage contains information on: talking about feelings and worries; keeping in touch and balancing screen time; ways to create structure and routine; and helping to give children a sense of control.
The NSPCC Library and Information Service has created a series of books for children who are worried or anxious. Their free information service remains open and can provide reading lists and help parents find information on safeguarding topics.  Contact:  learning@nspcc.org.uk
 
Parentzone have produced an article entitled "How to look after your families' health when stuck indoors."
 
 Below are a couple of resources which explain Coronavirus to children. Underdog is a cartoon strip which may address some of the worries that younger children have.
