Young people can experience a wide range of wellbeing difficulties as they progress through school, college and higher education. The lockdown brought with it a slightly different set of difficulties: ones that were, and are, being experienced by many young people. One of the key elements of adjusting to life in lockdown has been learning to navigate challenges and cope with change. Watch our ‘wellbeing in education – transitions’ animation to explore how 16 year old ‘Ananya’ and her family managed some of the challenges this year has presented. Moreover, how she and her older brother adopted a positive approach to keep their minds and bodies healthy and their education on track throughout the spring and summer of 2020. This animation and the links in the signposting section cover themes such as resilience that will be of use to young people now and in the future.

Go Higher West Yorkshire will be launching another 3 wellbeing in education animations in the coming months, covering different aspects of the topic. Also, taking on board feedback and requests from young people, parents/carers and education professionals we will be releasing a wellbeing in education workshop session. Follow @GoHigherWY on twitter, or sign up below for more information.

GHWY suggest that the animation is viewed/explored by a young person with or via a member of staff in school or a similar setting. This pdf provides further information.
