Public Health Well-Being Resources
As a result of the Covid19 pandemic, all families have and continue to experience unprecedented upheaval in their daily lives and situations. With children and young people now back at school, the new Public Health England (PHE) Better Health – Every Mind Matters campaign provides NHS-endorsed tips and advice to help children and young people’s mental wellbeing, and equip parents and carers with the knowledge to support them.
The new advice available on the Every Mind Matters website has been developed in partnership with leading children and young people’s mental health charities, including Young Minds, The Mix, Place2Be and The Anna Freud Centre. It is designed to help parents and carers spot the signs that children may need support with their mental health at this challenging time, and also provides advice that can help maintain good mental wellbeing. The site also provides tools to help young people build resilience and equips them to look after their mental wellbeing.
Sheffield Children’s Hospital and Sheffield City Council have developed resources for families, children and young people awaiting assessment for Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), other neurodevelopmental conditions or who may already have a diagnosis. Parents and carers may also find many of the linked resources of more general use with their child. There are a number of pages filled with resources to manage difficulties around sleep, behaviour, emotional well-being, sensory issues, going back to school, COVID-19 and the assessment process itself. There are quick reference sheets, top tips, booklets, guides and videos across many topics for a range of ages. If you would like a paper copy of the summary booklet then please call 0114 271 7656.
