Welcome to our Wellbeing page for parents to support their children and themselves

Having good mental health, helps us relax more, achieve more, and enjoy our lives more. We understand that children and adults may be feeling anxious, stressed, sad, lonely, or frustrated at some point. We sign post all of our children, adults, and school community to the ‘Every Mind Matters’ website: https://www.nhs.uk/oneyou/every-mind-matters/.

There will be a focus on the link between mental health and financial difficulties, including the impact this relationship can have on managing finances and engaging with help. Halton and Warrington Citizens advice will discuss local data highlighting who is engaging with financial support during Covid 19 and more worryingly who isn’t. You will be able to ask questions and engage with the webinar via a 15 minute Question and Answer section at the end

This webinar is aimed at professionals, volunteers and members of the public who live and work in Runcorn, Widnes and Warrington

Adults as well as children need to look after their emotional wellbeing. Please find activities below for families to complete together.
