It’s good to talk
Talking to each other and supporting one another is important for mental wellbeing at all times, but it’s especially important while we are in this crisis. It will be important to continue this after the pandemic has ended as well.
If you need someone to talk to you can always contact your Teaching and Learning Coach or a member of the safeguarding team even if you just want to chat.
