Mental health and self-care for young people
It's fair to say 2020 was not exactly easy, and many are feeling uncertain or anxious about the future. But there's loads of things we can all do to look after our mental wellbeing. Taking any time you can for self-care is massively important, especially now.

Lancashire Emotional Health
We know that an important way in which schools and colleges can support pupils is by working together with parents and carers, and sharing information about how they can help support and promote good mental health for their children.

To help schools and colleges with this, we have begun to develop a range of video and written resources that take some of the key ideas from our schools training and present them in ways that parents and carers can use at home.
