Looking after your own mental health and wellbeing

You will be better able to look after children and young people in your care, if you are caring for your own emotional wellbeing.

Further information

Children and young people will benefit from adults who are able to deal with things calmly and confidently and this will provide them with reassurance as well as helping them to develop their own emotional responses based on what they see from the adults around them.

See guidance on how to look after your mental health and wellbeing during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic or visit Every Mind Matters for clear advice and actions to take care of your mental health and wellbeing.
