The summer holidays offer an opportunity to recharge, but some young people may find themselves struggling without the structure and support network of school.
We’ve created these #SelfCareSummer packs for primary and secondary schools. 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, including the AFC crisis messenger text service.
It is also important that staff look after their mental health and wellbeing over the holidays, which is why we’ve created a self-care toolkit for education staff with tips and resources to support you in looking after your wellbeing.
If you are a young person looking for immediate support visit our Urgent Help page.
