This programme has been designed to help young people reflect on their time while in lockdown, identify the strategies they used to help them cope and recognise the connections they made with family and others. It also considers strategies to maintain positive mental health and physical wellbeing and to use these to build their capacity, going forward, for other periods of change in their lives that they will encounter. It facilitates their understanding of the support networks that are available to them, that they can be a support for others and helps them develop resilience for dealing with times of change.
