COVID-19 Guided self-help booklet series

This series of seven booklets have been produced to support people with mild to moderate learning/intellectual disabilities during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The booklets can be used with the support of family members, friends, volunteers and carers and are also suitable for social work and health professionals. They are intended to give people with learning/intellectual disabilities an opportunity to talk through their feelings with people providing support to them. They cover topics such as relaxing, solving problems, being active and staying well, getting a good nights sleep and coping with feeling down.
