How has your children’s mental health been impacted by the pandemic?: "Hi I have a 14 year old daughter, due to long term health conditions I was very wary of leaving home since the pandemic started, this meant that my daughter had very little contact with the outside world except for online and by phone. As time progressed she became very withdrawn and quiet, also finding it difficult to sleep. She has never been a overly confident person which is causing me concern in case there are any further lockdowns or restrictions. Luckily she seems to have settled back at school has has this week joined a after school netball club which hopefully help with her confidence and enable her to have time away from home."
