Students are facing unprecedented challenges during the pandemic and lockdown. Parents and cares can play a vital role in supporting them through these difficult times.

Self-isolation can pose a particular problem and Public Health England has published new online guidance setting out principles to follow to help manage your mental health during this difficult time.

Key activities include:

  • maintaining contact with friends and family via telephone and video calls, or social media

  • keeping a regular routine and sleeping pattern

  • focusing on a hobby or learning something new

Advice is available on how to support children and young people with stress during the Coronavirus outbreak, which includes providing clear information, being aware of their own reactions and creating a new routine. Click here.
