Pastoral Pointers

4th March 2021

Times are tough for many people right now. Parents find themselves pulled in many different directions and children may be struggling being in the house for so much longer than usual. A mixture of concern about covid, the uncertainty, lack of travel or connection with family and working from home, along with a possible financial impact make for a stressful household.

Young Minds, the UK’s leading charity fighting for children and young people's mental health, have created a useful 'Supporting Parents Helpfinder'. By answering six questions, parents can find out how to support their child's mental health during the pandemic (and beyond).
