‘Be Amasin’ Anxiety Supports New

Anxiety resource for children, young people, and their families

Since the return to school during the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been a significant increase in conversations about anxiety and the impact it is having on children and young people. Education staff have observed a change in the Mental Health and Wellbeing of children and young people with significant concerns revolving around school-based, social and general anxiety.

Following discussions with schools in North Ayrshire, it has been reported that staff – particularly pastoral and SLT – are receiving more calls from parents and carers about the increased anxiety they are seeing in their children. Parents and carers are increasingly worried about how to best support their children’s emotional wellbeing, as well as manage the worry they are experiencing themselves.

To this end, the psychological service, alongside our Mental Health and Wellbeing operational leads and our principal teachers of nurture, have developed some resources to support children and young people and their families.
