Mental Health and Wellbeing Support – Further support

Dear Parents and Carers,

Many people may find the Christmas period challenging for a number of reasons; financial pressures, an expectation to be ‘happy’, difficult family relationships, grief and loss to name but a few.  

The Christmas period this year may be even harder because of the impact of the coronavirus pandemic, which has dominated our lives for most of the year.

Looking after your mental health and well-being has never been more important so I wanted to share some resources with you which I hope you will find helpful.  Please reach out if you are struggling, talking to someone that you trust is a helpful first step in releasing some of the pressure and getting the support you need.
