COVID-19 Information for Young People
DSPP has put together the attached Coronavirus information leaflet, with help from Dudley Young People’s Health Champions in HealthWatch and Dudley CVS, to help the young people of Dudley keep safe:
Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families
Well-being advice for all those supporting children and young people.
British Psychological Society (BPS)
Advice on dealing with school closures and talking to children about COVID-19.
A downloadable guide for children about coronavirus.
An educational resource for all adults on children and young people’s mental health.
The Child Bereavement Network
Advice on supporting grieving children during the coronavirus outbreak.
The idea is to instil some inspiration with the children at their homes and contribute at helping keep all of the young ones motivated with some nice simple activities they can do with their family throughout this period!
Below are also a range of resources which are aimed at helping children understand the virus and to manage anxiety around what is happening:
