Riding the Corona Coaster

In Auckland, students and their families are experiencing challenging times with the Super-City being at Level 3 lockdown again.

Riding this Corona Coaster and navigating the ups and downs of the current reality is proving to be confronting for many people. The Coronavirus has turned our lives upside down with students returning to remote learning and parents continuing to juggle the home environment.

The uncertainty of not knowing what will happen next may have an impact on many students and their families. There is a concern that mental health issues such as anxiety, depression and substance abuse, will increase, especially amongst young people. In the coming weeks, it will be vital for adult carers to reduce the stress levels at home and make life seem more manageable.

As an adult carer, it will also be essential to look after your own wellbeing during this time. Ensure you make time to de-escalate your own nervous system and maintain your sleep routine, healthy eating habits, get some regular exercise and reach out virtually to friends and family.

In this Special Report, families are encouraged to embrace the guidance offered to help minimise the impact of this corona coaster. You can check out the Special Report HERE
