Mental Health & Well Being – Parents & Carers

Being a parent or carer can be challenging in everyday situations. Taking care of your mental health is important. It’s okay to reach out for support from friends, families and organisations that can provide help and to find support where and when you require it.

 

Evidence shows that where support is provided to help manage behaviour at home, alongside work being carried out with the child at school, there is a much greater likelihood of success in reducing the child’s problems and in supporting their academic and emotional development.

 

Changes to our own mental health as adults can sometimes affect children and their well-being. They may pick up on your anxiety or low mood. This doesn’t mean you should hide or minimise your feelings. You can try to explain how you are feeling in child friendly ways.

 

Our staff have undertaken various courses to support mental health and well being including safeTALK, anxiety, sleep, wellbeing and bereavement and loss, please get in touch with a member of the Designated Safeguarding Team should you wish to find out more.

 

 

ARFID (Avoidant / Restrictive Food Intake Disorder)

If your child, or a child you know, refuses to eat certain foods, and you have been unable to coerce them to try alternate foods, please consider watching  this video which explains

What ARFID is along with Information and details on ARFID behaviour, causes and treatment.

Children with ARFID – or Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder – are often assumed to being “difficult” or “picky” eaters, but it’s much more complex than that.
