Mental Health and Well-Being
What is mental health?
Mental health refers to a person’s psychological and emotional well-being. It’s about how we feel within ourselves, our ability to cope with stress, and our resilience. Common mental health conditions include depression, anxiety and phobias.
Why is it important?
The mental health and wellbeing of our students is incredibly important, and we strive to ensure they feel cared for, valued and belong in the school community. With those things in place, we can support students to achieve their full potential.
Where can I turn to talk about my mental health?
We are aware that some students face barriers or events in their life for which they will need additional support. In these instances, the tutor is usually the first point of contact, as well as student services, or one of the staff in the mental health team. Please see the poster below as to who this applies to.
