From ‘Young Minds’

“If you’re worried about the impact of coronavirus on your mental health, or the mental health of a child or young person in your life, you are not alone. The COVID-19 pandemic is a new and uncertain time for all of us and will affect our mental health in different ways.

While most of the attention has understandably been on physical health, it is more important than ever that we make sure to look after our mental health and the mental health of our loved ones. That’s why we have been working – and will continue to work – to support young people and their parents and carers during these difficult times.”

“If you’re a young person struggling with your mental health at this difficult time, there is support out there for you. Take a look at our new page on coronavirus and mental health,which we’re continuing to review and update in line with the latest government advice, If you’re a parent or carer, please be gentle with yourself. So much has changed and you’re doing the best you can – you’ve got this. If you do need support, have a look at our page on supporting your child during the coronavirus pandemic. This is a difficult time for all of us, but together we’ll get through it.”
