Wellbeing

Dear families

 

Looking after our mental health during these times of social distancing/isolation is important and can be difficult to do, when having to stay at home with minimal external supports. Hopefully a mix of outdoor time, social connection via technology and some sort of home based routine (including doing things you enjoy) will help you get through these times.  

 

I will be available on Tuesday’s and Thursdays from 9-2pm for phone sessions and potentially webex sessions with individual students and/or families if requested. Also if you would like activities to support wellbeing please contact me.  

 

Just a reminder that the Smiling Mind app is a free. It provides mindfulness and meditation tools to support healthy minds and to help prevent mental illness. The app has  programs for  kids and youth,  adults, families, classrooms and work.
