Support with your Mental Health

Cognitive behaviour therapy is widely used in the treatment of anxiety and depression. The idea is that the reframing of thoughts and beliefs can change how we respond to situations. This free resource is specifically aimed at young people and their families to help with the emotional fall-out of Covid-19 crisis. This brief course comes in bite-sized sections and is primarily aimed at young people aged between 12-18, however the content is equally beneficial to parents, families, teachers and supporters of young people.

The mental health charity - Mind, have developed specific support for 'Coronavirus and your wellbeing'.
