The Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families
Publishing a collection of self-care strategies
Different things work for different people, so suggest a variety of options.
Encourage people to try things out and change what they’re doing if it’s not helping.
Self-care is not always appropriate and should not be seen as a substitute for professional support. Be clear on when to get more help.
Provide clearly visible information about how to get professional help alongside self-care strategies.
We’re constantly on the look out for new patterns. If you have a service/product which you think could be used as a new pattern, we’d love to hear about it.
