Coronavirus / Covid-19

Welcome to our COVID-19 information page. Here you will find up to date information that the school is receiving and publishing.

Mental Wellbeing and Covid-19 recovery

 

As a school we have seen an increase in the way Covid-19 can challenge people’s mental health, ranging from mild anxiety to post traumatic stress disorder. The British Psychological Society established a Covid-19 Coordinating Group with resources and advice for the general public. In addition the Covid Trauma Response Working Group have provided guidance for people recovering from severe Covid-19 illness.

 

Feeling worried and anxious are normal reactions, and particularly so if you or a family member were effected by Covid-19.  There is a lot of support and resources to help people with mental health issues. At Harris we can provide students with counselling opportunities or mentoring. We also have a Chaplain to support students and staff. Take a look at our Wellbeing ages for support groups that may help with Mental Health.
