Self-care summer resources to help Children, Young People and School Staff practise self-care over the summer break HERE
The summer holidays offer an opportunity to recharge, but some young people may find themselves struggling without the structure and support network of school.
Anna Freud Centre has created these #SelfCareSummer packs. These packs feature a range of creative activities based on self-care strategies that other young people have found useful in helping them stay mentally healthy.
They also signpost young people and their families to additional support.
