Wellbeing and self-care
As parents and carers, it is important to look after your own wellbeing as well as your child’s.
Cheshire East Council has just launched an online mental health information point, www.cheshireeast.gov.uk/mentalhealthinfopoint which contains a range of information and resources that you can use to help overcome any anxieties you may have during this time of uncertainty, including:
- self-help techniques to manage symptoms or prevent problems developing or getting worse
- personalised help using a questionnaire to find out what support is available during the Covid-19 crisis
- urgent help from the Cheshire and Wirral Partnership 24/7 mental health support line 0300 303 3972
We are urging all parents, carers, children and young people not to suffer in silence or struggle with their mental health during the coronavirus pandemic, be kind to yourself and reach out to the range of services and organisations that can help.
