Mental Health Tips for Children

by | May 7, 2020

According to CEOP’s latest survey, many parents and carers are concerned about the impact of COVID-19 on their children’s mental health and wellbeing, and are actively seeking resources and support.

Mental Health Awareness Week is celebrated between 18 – 24th May, with this year said to be the most important week yet.

In our brand new video for primary aged children, Milly and Philip share their top mental health and wellbeing tips to stay healthy and happy.

Looking to open up the conversation further? Watch our brand new homeschooling story for wellbeing.

From our work with students, and our mental health and wellbeing workshops for schools, we understand that young people want to take an active role in their mental health, and talking about how they are feeling is key to positive wellbeing.

Positive mental health and wellbeing for young people is at the heart of everything we do at OpenView Education, and is a theme that also runs through our Anti-Bullying and Internet Safety Training for students.

If you are looking for further support during this time, you can access our Homeschooling parent zone here, including E-Safety Guides, and our Online Internet Safety Training Course for Parents.
