We know that this year with the continuation of the pandemic that people including students may need some additional support to be successful at school.
Keep in mind that children can express their feelings in many ways. We encourage you to speak openly with your children about what they are feeling.
As a parent or carer you can help your child with what they’re experiencing:
* Listen to their concerns – let them know you’re there for them and acknowledge how they’re feeling
* Make time to talk – provide an space for them to share their feelings and worries.
* Focus on strengths and hope.
There are a range of online and face-to-face services that can help you support your child. ACT Health has put together a page of information that families may find useful: Ways you can support your own mental health and wellbeing | Health (act.gov.au)
