A new Website, How are you feeling? now has a coronavirus section featuring advice and support on emotional and mental health during the pandemic, as well as blogs from young people about ways in which they are coping.
The website, managed by HeadStart Hull, has been developed with the help of young people, who were asked what support they felt they needed.
It provides information on self-care and tips for mental and emotional health, as well as services offering support and advice across Hull, and nationally.
It also includes training and support for professionals and help and advice for parents and carers.
How are you feeling? features blogs by local young people on how they are managing their mental well-being during the current situation and other young people are invited to contribute blogs to share positive messages and talk about how they are managing the challenges they currently face.
HeadStart Hull programme manager Gail Teasdale said, “Young people in Hull wanted a trusted source of information where they could access the guidance and support they needed.
“The website allows access to our support services, and also offers a wealth of helpful tips, advice and links to external services to help improve emotional health, all tested and approved by young people.
“During this uncertain time, it is really important that there is a source they can trust to keep them informed and to help with their emotional well-being. The site now carries a dedicated section for the coronavirus situation that will help young people and families who are feeling stressed or anxious during this difficult time to get reliable and accurate information with one click.”
HeadStart Hull partnership is led by Hull City Council and is a National Lottery Community Fund programme designed to enable children and young people to have positive mental health and well-being, thrive in their communities and bounce back from life’s challenges.
The programme was co-produced with the HeadStarter Young Volunteers as part of their young people led approach.
