‘MY LIFE AND LEARNING IN LOCKDOWN’
Covid-19 Lockdown and School RESTARTs –
IMPACT on emotional wellbeing and mental health
The Assembly Committee for Education is currently examining how the COVID-19 lockdown, school closures and restarts has impacted the emotional wellbeing and mental health of young people. While the Committee has heard from a range of education and health professionals in recent months about the impact of lockdown on children and young people, we are keen that you are provided with the opportunity to tell your own story and have your voice heard.
We would like to invite you to take part in one or both of the following activities:
Young PEOPLE’s stakeholder event (16+)
Zoom, 6pm-8pm, Wednesday 2nd June 2021
Are you aged 16 or over? Would you like the opportunity to share how the COVID-19 lockdown, school closures and restarts has impacted the emotional wellbeing and mental health of you or those around you? If so, the Committee for Education would like to invite you to attend ‘Your Life and Learning in Lockdown’ Young People’s Stakeholder event. The event will take place on Zoom, 6pm-8pm, Wednesday 2nd June 2021.
This is your opportunity to tell politicians about your personal experiences, share your thoughts on how things could have been done better, and how they could be improved now and in the future.
