Mentally Healthy Schools (uploaded 22/06/2020)

Transitioning to a new school or new school year can be a difficult time under normal circumstances, but in this pandemic, the change may bring up more complex emotions than usual. We know from working closely with teachers that there is a lot of concern about what the new school year may bring. 

Mentally Healthy Schools have produced this toolkit, with lots of useful resources for teachers, parents and carers, to help prepare children for the change and help them manage and understand their emotions at this time.
