A collection of useful resources to support all the family during the Coronavirus pandemic

The most important thing that we want you to remember, is that it is normal to feel a whole range of emotions during these extraordinary times. Feeling stressed and anxious is not a sign of you not coping. It is as important that you look after your and your children's emotional well-being as it is your physical health.

We hope that these resources help you to talk about what we are going through together, find healthy ways of coping and ideas for managing the isolation that we are experiencing from our usual support networks.

Making a schedule and acknowledging your reactions are normal - advice from Bessel Van der Kolk, Psychiatrist + Author of "The Body Keeps The Score" (2014)
