Three for 3
Take action to help other people by sharing three things you’re doing to stay positive during the coronavirus crisis with three others.
So many people want to help others during the coronavirus crisis, including young people. We wanted to know what our young people thought was the most important thing for them to take action on, so we did the easiest thing â€“ we asked them.
At the top of their list was â€˜peer supportâ€™. They told us that young peopleâ€™s mental wellbeing is going to be disproportionately affected by the current coronavirus crisis, and yet itâ€™s not being widely talked about.
Thatâ€™s why, weâ€™re asking young people to share Three for 3. Write (or draw) three things youâ€™re doing to look after your mental wellbeing during this challenging time and share these ideas with three other people.
Once youâ€™ve shared your three things, the people youâ€™ve shared with should share their own three things with you and three others, keeping the conversation about wellbeing going. You can do this with your family, friends, or if youâ€™re over 13 and have social media, by tagging people on social media using #Threefor3.
By taking action you’ll be helping other people find out new ways to support their wellbeing.
Remember, only share things you feel comfortable sharing, and remember â€“ when somethingâ€™s on the internet, itâ€™s â€˜out thereâ€™ for anyone to see and very difficult to delete permanently.
- For Parents:
Supervise young people when theyâ€™re online and let them know how they can stay safe.
For more support around online safety or bullying, check out the NSPCC website. If you want to know more about specific social networks and games, the Net Aware website has loads of information and safety tips for apps.
Why not post your young personâ€™sÂ #Threefor3Â on your own social media channels?
- For Volunteers:
As always, if youâ€™ve got concerns about a young personâ€™s welfare (including their online experiences), follow theÂ Yellow Card reporting processes.
