Please find below some useful resources which may be of interest - There are resources in place to support children and young people with their mental health, please visit Kent Resilience Hub https://kentresiliencehub.org.uk/ for professionals / parents and visit Mood Spark https://moodspark.org.uk/ for young people. They were developed with funding from the Big Lottery Communities Programme and have had extensive engagement from young people, parents and professionals.
Resources to support resilience conversations with individual young people are available. Articles, vlogs and music are then provided, linked to each of the resilience domains: https://kentresiliencehub.org.uk/.../resilience.../.
The Kent Resilience Toolkit assists schools and community organisations to develop a whole setting approach, resulting in an award. KCHFT School Public Health now deliver this approach across Kent: https://kentresiliencehub.org.uk/.../the-resilience-toolkit/
There is a link to the Resilience Hub called ‘Draw Your Own Solution’. It has a strong social media presence as well as appearing on the sides of buses in Kent. This is the young people’s page: https://moodspark.org.uk/draw-your-own-solution/ and this is the parents page: https://kentresiliencehub.org.uk/.../draw-your-own.../.
Of course, there will be some children and young people who need to find their way to a service. They can do this on the Kent Resilience Hub and Mood Spark website.
There are also resources which refer specifically to COVID-19 developed by local experts: https://kentresiliencehub.org.uk/covid-19-resources/.
