Mental Health

As a result of coronavirus, self isolation may have allowed us to do those things we have always been meaning to do; the pace of living may have slowed down, you may have had more time to relax and you may have been able to spend more quality time with your immediate family. While many of us have managed to keep in contact with loved ones and friends in new ways online, lockdown may also cause concern and anxiety, leading to difficulties with our mental health and well-being. 

On this page, you can find useful web links and resources that will help the whole family to stay happy and healthy during these strange and difficult times.
