COVID-19 Resources

The World Health Organisation (WHO) has described the coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) outbreak as a pandemic. As this public health emergency unfolds, it’s not unreasonable to suggest that in these unprecedented times, we may see a decline in the mental health of the population and a potential increase in mental health problems. If our mental health is compromised, our ability to cope is likely to be limited.

We have to act to prevent this and / or limit the potentially devastating impact this could have. We must take action to protect our mental health and wellbeing. To support our communities to do this, we have made a number of resources freely available.

For workplaces across the UK and Republic of Ireland, there’s our online mental health awareness learning modules and our PDF Document ‘Mental Health Is Everyone’s Business’.

For all teachers, parents and carers, there’s our online TMH toolkit and the Wellbeing through Sport Activity Programme. To promote the positive mental and physical health of children and families, we are proud to have worked with EdStart Sports Coaching to develop the unique 6 week Wellbeing Through Sport Activity Programme. The weekly activities will be shared through our social medial channels.

We have also published a number of blogs and will continue to do so.

At all times please follow Government Advice on what you need to do to stay safe.
