Introduction

We will aim to update this page with mental health resources during COVID-19.

ThinkNinja

We have received details of a free mental health resource "ThinkNinja" which has been updated to support students during the current Covid-19 situation.

The new content provides an opportunity for young people to better understand and process the following:

  • Fears relating to the virus
  • Isolation struggles and how to stay connected to family and friends
  • Worries about personal health and health of family members
  • Coping techniques to use during the crisis
  • Plus many other helpful tips

The new content was created by specialist child psychologists and is now available via the ThinkNinja home screen and the WiseNinja chat main menu.

The Travel Planning Team at Hampshire County Council have been busy putting together some ideas for families to use at home during this period of lockdown and, in particular, how to put your daily exercise time to good use whilst focusing on your mental health. There are also more ideas for families to access at www.myjourneyhampshire.com/wellbeing and we will be adding to this page over the coming weeks so keep an eye out for more initiatives and ideas.

The My Journey website has lots of information about active travel which you are welcome to access, including curriculum resources linked to travel choices and their impact on the environment.

Hampshire County Council have produced the below "Walking for Wellbeing" leaflet.

The Travel Planning Team at HCC wishes you all well.
