The toolkit is easily accessible to you through Hwb, the digital platform for learning and teaching in Wales. You should already be familiar with Hwb if you’re logging into your account regularly at home to check and complete school work online.

Something for everyone

There are six categories to the Young Person’s Mental Health Toolkit:

  • Coronavirus and your well-being
  • Crisis
  • Anxiety
  • Keeping healthy
  • Low mood
  • Loss

Each of these categories will give you a list of self-help websites, apps, helplines and other things that can help support your mental health and well-being.

Responding to the coronavirus pandemic

Launched for young people aged 11-25 by Education Minister Kirsty Williams and Health and Social Services Minister Vaughan Gething. The aim of the toolkit is to respond to the effect that Covid-19 may be having on your emotional and mental wellbeing during this challenging time.

The tool is simple to use and brings together a list of resources under each category. Each has a short description of what the service provides and a link to that service.

The toolkit will be updated and will evolve to adapt to any changes as is needed.
