Mental Health and Wellbeing

Mental Health and Wellbeing

Children and Young people’s well-being will be significantly affected by the COVID-19 outbreak. This pandemic is resulting in massive and widespread changes to daily life and will have consequences for children and young people’s well-being. For young people with mental ill-health the effects of the virus may be particularly challenging. COVID-19 may result in heightened feelings of anxiety and worry and could exacerbate low-mood and other mental health conditions.

There is one in particular, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). This anxiety disorder is sometimes misunderstood by our misuse of the expression. The pandemic is resulting in this anxiety being exacerbated. Please click here for a short “fact” sheet to raise understanding and support to people who may need it.
