Health and Wellbeing

Taking care of your mind as well as your body is really important while staying at home because of coronavirus (COVID-19).

You may feel bored, frustrated or lonely. You may also be low, worried or anxious, or concerned about your finances, your health or those close to you. It's important to remember that it is OK to feel this way and that everyone reacts differently.

Remember, this situation is temporary and, for most of us, these difficult feelings will pass. Staying at home may be difficult, but you are helping to protect yourself and others by doing it.

The tips and advice here are things you can do now to help you keep on top of your mental wellbeing and cope with how you may feel while staying at home. Make sure you get further support if you feel you need it.

Home Schooling

As people around the world continue to self-isolate amid the coronavirus pandemic, parents have found themselves taking on a new role as teachers.

However, even with remote help from real teachers, many parents have found the stay-at-home teaching model to be quite difficult.

From children begging to return to school to parents admitting they aren’t able to figure out their child’s homework, these are the issues parents are facing.

Whilst at this time of Social Distancing/Self-Isolation, Parenting/Managing with children at home can be lots of fun but can also be very challenging too. We can help, as we deliver virtual groups and on line support. Click here to view our Online Parenting course details
