Mental Health

Supporting your child's return to school: Back To School After Lockdown – Tips From An NHS Psychologist

In the interview, Dr Ghelani shares advice for parents on preparing in advance for school reopening, managing worry and anxiety, how to speak to children about the impact of Coronavirus, and links to further important resources.

There are so many websites available that sometimes, it's difficult to know where to go for help first.  The messages are often the same; mental health begins with putting yourself first and taking time to relax, exercise, eat well and finding the positives in life.  We hope the following will help you, and your family, if you need it.


The Mental Health Foundation

The Foundation believe that forming a family and parenting is an important part of life, with many changes taking place. Both mothers' and fathers' mental health may be affected during this transition, which may influence their child's mental health.  They work on a variety of innovative projects with children and young people.  The website has a range of content designed to give you more information about mental health and to help you to look after your mental health.  The site includes podcasts, videos, inspiring stories and information about getting help if you're struggling.










CAMHS Resources

This website was created for young people, carers and professionals to pool together lots of helpful resources from across the internet that are available to help support your mental health and well-being. Whilst this is not an official NHS site, it has been constructed by a CAMHS professional to offer help.


CAMHS have also put together a selection of useful videos dedicated for the use of anyone supporting children and young people with a Learning Disability or Autism. Their videos were designed to pass on helpful information in an easy, informative way which you can watch as frequently as you need. The videos below are recorded by clinicians within our team, and the videos are grouped by category for your convenience. Please click on any of the links to be taken to the collection of videos for each category.

Young Minds

Young Minds are leading the fight for a future where all young minds are supported and empowered, whatever the challenges.  Their website has lots of help and guidance for parents (including a telephone helpline) and young people.  They are here to make sure they get the best possible mental health support and have the resilience to overcome life’s difficulties.

The Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families is a children’s mental health charity with over 60 years’ experience of caring for young people and their families. Their vision is a world in which children and their families are effectively supported to build on their own strengths to achieve their goals in life.
