Help for children and young people affected by the pandemic

Children and young people’s mental health

The coronavirus outbreak is a worrying time for everyone. For children and young people, things like disruption to school life, not seeing friends and family and worrying about the health of loved ones may mean they are feeling more stressed, anxious or low than usual.

You can let them know about a range of support available to them:

  • 11-19 year olds can text the ChatHealth school nursing text service on 07480 635511 to get advice on a range of issues, including mental health
  • Young people aged 11-18 can log on to Kooth, a free online platform, to talk about emotional health and wellbeing
  • The YoungMinds website has lots of useful tips for managing mental health during coronavirus
