Developed by clinical psychologist Julie McCormack and Future Curious Ltd

We encourage schools and kura to draw on and share the COVID-19 Wellbeing Guide. It has been created to help teachers, parents/caregivers and whānau as they support the hauora/wellbeing of their children and young people.

The Guide was developed by clinical psychologist Julie McCormack, with support from Future Curious Limited. It consists of three modules and contains activities, tip sheets and resources to support children and young people and help them develop the resiliency skills they need in a time of stress and disruption.
