Welcome to Hareclive’s Well-being, Mental Health and Thrive page.

Each morning, why not check in with everyone you live with and ask them how they feel?

Information, support and resources for parents

During this period of uncertainty, looking after your family’s mental health is more important than ever. Please use the weekly activity ideas below to help support your child’s mental health during this time.

  • Letter for parents
  • Managing your child’s anxieties
  • Look out for any changes in behaviour: young people may respond to stress in different ways – have you noticed any changes in their emotional state or physical behaviours?
  • Provide clear information about the situation: talk openly about what is happening and provide honest answers to any questions they have. Also explain what is being done to keep them and their loved ones safe.
  • Acknowledge concerns: young people will be hearing things from friends and through social media. Talk to them about what is going on, listen to them and acknowledge their concerns.
  • Create a new routine: routine provides reassurance and an increased feeling of safety, especially if they are not in academy. Make a plan for the day or week that includes time for learning, physical activity and relaxing.
  • Here is a bulletin from the Families in Focus teams. There is loads of information in here about all sorts of things that you may need support with so have a look through and pick out anything that may be relevant to you and your family: Information & Services Families Bulletin
