The Kooth service is available over the holidays for young
people aged 11-18 to access mental health support (February 2022)
The 'Motiv8 Young Persons Support Booklet' can be useful for families as a whole and offers some useful guides on how to manage feelings, how to seek help and support if needed and gives some ideas on how to keep busy.
As with the last lockdown, Motiv8 are continuing to support children and young people remotely by keeping in regular contact.
Whilst their support in general is for those impacted by addiction, they have been uploading videos to their Facebook page which are aimed at providing useful support tools for everyone, focussing on promoting positive mental health.
A new video will be uploaded every Friday throughout lockdown. Their previous videos are also available on their Facebook page –
