Quarriers unveil new resources to support young people’s mental health

QUARRIERS have unveiled new resources to support young people’s mental health during this challenging time with a guide ‘Looking after your Wellbeing during COVID-19’.

The initiative was launched as part of Mental Health Awareness Week through Quarriers’ ‘Resilience for Wellbeing Service’ and the guide can be accessed at https://quarriers.org.uk/services/borders-resilience-for-wellbeing/

The Resilience for Wellbeing Service works with young people who are at secondary school up to the age of 18 to improve their wellbeing with a focus on prevention and early intervention to aid and improve mental health.

The initiative – which supports all secondary schools through the Scottish Borders – is continuing to provide remote support for young people and recognises the challenges that many are facing.

Angela Freeman, Service Coordinator said:

“This service has been designed to guide and help young people to cope when times are tough and this has never been more relevant than now during the current situation.

“Our innovative approach has ensured that we were able to seamlessly transition to virtual delivery since school closure and we are proud that we have been able to continue to provide this valuable service.

“Our focus is on helping and supporting young people to identify coping strategies to manage when times are tough but with the knowledge that we are also here to support them.

“We recognise how difficult this period is for many young people who are missing their friends and day-to-day life and this guide has been created to provide advice and guidance to help them to identify coping strategies and to support them.”

The guide contains a range of information from helping young people to look at how they are feeling and finding ways to cope through to supporting family and friends as well as making plans for the future.

Due to the current situation with COVID-19 the services office is closed to the public. For further information email: borders@quarriers.org.uk.
