Looking after your family’s mental wellbeing during coronavirus

Lots of parents are feeling anxious about coronavirus and the effects of lockdown on themselves and their children. It’s only natural because life is different for now. But this time will pass.

It’s important to ask for help if you are worried about paying bills or buying food. If you are worried about your own or someone else’s health phone NHS 24 on 111 (999 in an emergency) or visit NHS inform.

Do the things that you normally do to help you stay on an even keel. If any of your children struggle with change, the most important thing you can do is create a safe space and structure for them to help them adapt.
