Support for young people during COVID-19

Many children and young people have found the pandemic and its impact on their lives extremely difficult, including those Camden pupils and students who have had to self-isolate at home due to COVID-19 cases at their school or college.

To help you stay happy and healthy, we've put together some of the best online resources we could find.

Kooth - a free, safe and anonymous online wellbeing and mental health support website for 11 to 18 year olds - is also now available in Camden. Find out more and how to sign up here.

You can also read or download our simple guide, called '6 Ways for Young People to Manage Feelings of Anxiety and Stress'.

Childline has created a web page with information for children and young people about coronavirus. The page includes information about: what coronavirus is, where children and young people can find help if they are worried, coping if they are staying at home and what to do if they are feeling unwell.

The Anna Freud Centre's website has some great self-care resources and ideas in their 'On My Mind' section here.
