Dealing with anxiety is tough, but help is always available. That’s the message from the Young Minds charity.
They explain that lots of us will go through periods of time where we feel more anxious than usual, especially during times of uncertainty and change. For a lot of us, there has been no greater period of uncertainty and change than the Covid-19 pandemic, so it’s natural to feel a little bit more anxious than usual.
If you’re a young person, they have a guide to anxiety that has lots of information and tips that can help. You can also check out their guide to making a ‘self-soothe box’ for when times are tough.
If you’re a parent looking for ways to support your child, have a look at their parent’s guide to anxiety, or their guide to making a ‘worry box’ with your child for an activity you can try. With a bit of support, things can get better.
