Almost 7,000 counselling sessions about coronavirus have taken place with children and young people
Since the start of January Childline has delivered 6,938 counselling sessions to children and young people who have got in touch about Coronavirus (COVID-19)1.
In April, we launched our urgent appeal Still here for children to help us fund vital services like Childline, so we can continue to be here for children who need help.
The main concerns that children and young people have been talking about are the same as before lockdown. But there's been an increase in the proportion of counselling sessions which are about mental health and wellbeing2.
Indeed, every week since lockdown we delivered over 2,000 counselling sessions with children concerned about their mental health and emotional wellbeing – totalling nearly 17,000 over 7 weeks3.
For many young people, the difficult circumstances they were already facing, which can include abuse, domestic violence and difficult family relationships, have been exacerbated during lockdown leaving them feeling alone and trapped.
The main concerns that children and young people have been talking about are the same as before lockdown. But there’s been an increase in the proportion of counselling sessions which are about mental health and wellbeing.
