Mental Health & Well-Being
Taking care of your mind as well as your body is really important while staying at home because of coronavirus (COVID-19).
Your child may be feeling scared, frustrated or lonely.
They may also be worried or concerned about their health and that of those close to them.
Children may not fully understand what coronavirus (COVID-19) is, why we are staying home or when life will return to normal. It is important to explain that it is absolutely fine to feel this way and that everyone reacts differently. Encourage your child to talk about their feelings and ask questions.
Remember, this situation is temporary and will pass. Staying at home may be difficult, but you are helping to protect yourself and others by doing it. You are not stuck at home, you are safe at home.
Below you’ll find resources, tips and advice to help you and your family keep on top of your mental well-being.
