Summer is only a few weeks away. Though some find it is great to have a long break, others struggle with the lack of structure and routine. Self care is all about finding a way that we can look after our wellbeing both physically and mentally.
|This summer try to find a moment each day to reflect on a few things that brought you joy or good feelings during the day. Being grateful and positive can help boost your wellbeing.|
The Anna Freud Centre has created #SelfCareSummer packs. These packs feature a range of creative activities based on self-care strategies that other young people have found useful in helping them stay mentally healthy.

Exam support / Results Day
Resources to navigate the exam season:
Exam season can be a challenging time for young people. Many feel stressed in the lead-up to their exams and worried in anticipation of their results. As adults, it can be difficult to know what we can do to support children and young people during this time. As young people sitting the exams, it is hard to come up with practical advice to help ourselves.
Place2Be has created tip sheets to help you navigate and manage stress during exam season.
