    Supporting your young person during the holidays

    The holiday period can be the perfect time for relaxing, exploring and reuniting with family and friends. However, it can also be stressful or isolating for students as they step out of their usual week day routine which can often leave students feeling lonely, bored or unsettled. 

    There are many reasons why the holiday period might not be as happy or joyous as we would like. During these times, it is valuable for families and friends to be aware of signs and symptoms that something might be wrong with their loved ones. Being withdrawn, not doing the things they would normally enjoy, ongoing worry or irritability are just some of the changes to look out for. 

    See the PDF below to access some further information and tips on supporting young people during the holidays.
