Telltale Signs That Your Child Is Stressed
Children learn how to respond to stress as they grow and develop. Many stressful life events, such as this stressful COVID-19 period that an adult can manage will cause stress in a child. Small changes such as not being able to mingle with peers can impact a child's feelings of safety and security.
Parents play an essential role when it comes to looking after their children's emotional health, including keeping their stress to a healthy minimum by learning to recognise the signs of stress.
Find out how to recognise the warning signs of stress in children in My Mental Health.

Improving Mental Wellness during Circuit Breaker
The global pandemic has had significant impact in our lives. Work-from-home policies, home-based learning, safe distancing from extended family and friends, interpersonal conflicts arising from prolonged close quarter living and uncertainty of job and financial stability in the near future creates increasing levels of stress and anxiety.
In this time of circuit breaker, as we cope with our emotional distress, we can understand our own emotional needs better by learning new therapeutic tools to help us to think, feel and respond better to ourselves and to others around us. Mindhealth@ClaritySG is an online resource that can help you improve your mental wellness.
Mindhealth@ClaritySG is Singapore's first online Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) based programme, created to commemorate the World Mental Health Day.
This programme offers individualised therapeutic learning with professional therapist feedbacks.
