Feeling concerned or overwhelmed by the news around coronavirus (COVID-19) is understandable, especially for those children and young people struggling with their mental health or a physical illness. They may be worried about their own health, or someone in their family, or what impact the virus will have on life as a whole.

A section has been created on Open Minds, Calderdale’s emotional health and wellbeing website where children, young people, parents, carers, family members, school staff and colleagues can find tips, support, advice and information about looking after yourself in these uncertain times. Please share this link widely with children, young people, families and colleagues.
