Useful links.

If you have any concerns about the mental health or well-being of your child?  Or if your child seems anxious or worried?  These websites are really useful as sources of information and support, not only for parents, but also for older children to access if and when they want advice.  I would be really interested to hear if you choose to use them and found them useful.

A colleague from another school has also recommended the following to me;

an app called Head space for helping to reduce anxiety and promote feelings of calm and well being.  Down load the app for a trial period or log on to https://www.headspace.com to find out more.

Meditation and Mindfulness Made Simple - Headspace
www.headspace.com
Live a happier, healthier life with just a few minutes of meditation a day on the Headspace app.

 

Also if you are concerned that your child may at risk of behavioural problems please visit the ministry of parenting at www.theministryofparenting.com, they have recently run two successful Incredible Years' courses at our school and feedback from parents has been very positive.

 

Finally there is always lots information, advice and support available from the Essex local offer at http://www.essexlocaloffer.org.uk, if you haven't taken a look yet, please do take some time to check it out.
