Healthy Minds - Lincolnshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust
The latest workshop created by Healthy Minds Lincolnshire is a 5 part series on managing change called “Survival Guide to Change”. This workshop series is appropriate for children and young people aged 10+. Families/carers of children younger than 10 are welcome to watch the videos themselves to learn skills and strategies to share with their children. We would recommend that children around the age of 10 are supported by an adult with completing these workshops. The videos make some references to COVID-19, but the strategies can be used for coping with many different changes.

Healthy Minds have also created:
1. a workshop to support parent/carers to learn new strategies to understand and support their child/young person presenting with anxiety and additional needs
2. a workshop for both primary and secondary age children to help manage worries and anxious feelings.
Using reading books can help support your child/children to manage their worries, thoughts and feelings. These two books can help you to talk with your child about their worries.

COVID-19 Coronavirus - Plan for Continued Support for Parents
We are all experiencing challenging times, it is important that we strengthen our networks of family and friends to try to support each other. As a school, we will continue to support families by maintaining contact through the DOJO messaging system and where appropriate we will contact parents directly on a weekly basis.
If you have any concerns, whether about learning or welfare matters, you can:
- DOJO message the class teacher directly
- DOJO message Mrs Smith directly
- Email the school and your email will be directed to the appropriate member of school staff firstname.lastname@example.org
