  • Young Minds - Supporting Parents Helpfinder                                                                                                          Times are tough for many people right now. Parents find themselves pulled in many different direction and children   may be struggling being in the house for so much longer than usual.  A mixture of concern about covid, work from   home and children at home, along with a possible financial impact make for a stressful household.  Young Minds have   created a useful 'Supporting Parents Helpfinder'. By answering six questions, parents/carers can find out how to   support their child's mental health during the pandemic (and beyond). 
  • Young Minds - When emotions explode. Young Minds have also created a useful poster highlighting ways to give support to children when they have angry feelings or outbursts and may help families start a conversation and talk about each other’s feelings.
  •  Mencap - Lots of useful information, advice and support on a variety of issues.
