Mental Health Awareness and Support

From time to time all children experience feelings of stress, anxiety or depression. Most of them will use a range of positive coping strategies to help them overcome these temporary difficulties.

Sometimes, these negative feelings will last a long time, and they may lead to them adopting some negative coping strategies. Negative coping strategies might include:

  • Self-harm;
  • School refusal;
  • Withdrawal from friends and family;
  • Challenging behaviour.

The Charlie Waller Memorial Trust publish a range of leaflets that can help you support your child through these difficult moments.
