Coronavirus Resources

We’ve put together a range of resources to help children and young people, as well as their parents and carers during the current situation.

For young people:

  • The Anna Freud National Center for Children and Families has produced this video giving advice for young people about managing their mental health and wellbeing during the coronavirus situation.

Talking with children:

For parents and carers

  • The Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families has also produced this video with guidance to parents and carers about how they can help children and young people manage their mental health and wellbeing during any disruption caused by the Coronavirus.
  • Norfolk County Council has produced these tips for staying healthy and happy while at home.
