Trusted information for parents and young people from the "YoungMinds" charity

Posted: Mon, 27 Apr 2020 17:52 by Roger Hornby

With the closure of schools and the ever-changing situation regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19) it is understandable that young people may be feeling increased levels of anxiety, concern or stress.

My name is Morag Tyler and my job role is Project Manager for Resilient Rutland, a Lottery funded project to support mental health and well-being for young people at school in Rutland.

We have been working hard on our website to provide trusted information on where to get help and advice. We have added specific Coronavirus information for parents and young people which has been created by the charity YoungMinds. More »

We have also created a Resources section on our website which offers a range of support. This includes: our own practical based support 'Resilient Moves' which can be used by both professionals and parents, a regularly updated directory of fantastic activities for young people and their families and also a range of free talks, courses and other general resources.

Follow Resilient Rutland on social media as we will be sharing all useful articles and activities on our Facebook page and via Twitter.

We are trying to reach as many people in Rutland as possible so if you could share this information on your village email and/or website that would be very much appreciated.

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to get in touch.

Warm regards

Instead, on EVERY Thursday from 2.00 to 3.00pm we are having a quiet time, each at home, thinking and praying for the coronavirus and other needs in our community and beyond. There are our thoughts and prayers to guide us on the internet which everyone is welcome to share.
