Wellbeing guides for Parents
The Surrey and Borders Partnership NHS Foundation Trust has produced a variety of videos aimed at supporting young people, families and carers during these challenging times. Recognising that the ongoing Covid situation and another lockdown can make children and young people feel anxious, these webinars have been developed for families and carers to look at anxiety and explore ways to understand and support children and young people.
