Time Out Website:
Healthy Minds are focusing on reaching out to young people via our website and Facebook page and we are putting daily activities on there for young people and children to do as we understand that this period of isolation can affect young peoples’ mental health. They are also hoping young people can send in blogs about their experience of being in isolation. Please see the website for more details: http://www.timeoutcalderdale.co.uk/coronavirus.html

Calderdale’s Emotional Health & Wellbeing Website has lots of useful information. Visit: www.openmindscalderdale.org.uk 

Mental Health & Wellbeing (COVID-19):
At Whitehill Community Academy children’s wellbeing is considered a great importance and we would like to help you support your child with this during any period of isolation. The following are links to support your child’s wellbeing and mental and physical health. Keeping active, getting outside (this can just be in the garden), being creative (e,g. baking, art), mindfulness time (e.g. mindful colouring, yoga, meditation), can all help support your child and yourselves.
