Mental Health and Dealing with Stress

Your mental health is very important as you go through your teenage years, and indeed for the rest of your life. There are lots of things you can do to support your mental wellbeing. There are some examples on this page to help you. If you need further support, please approach a trusted adult, your form tutor, pastoral lead or a member of the safeguarding team. 

Knowing what steps we can take to support our mental wellbeing can help us feel better, sleep better and have better relationships with the people around us – and that goes not just for today but for the future too.

Check out these NHS videos for all sorts of tips on exercise, sleep and how to take care of yourself on social media. You will also find links to help for groups of people who may be finding things particularly tough, or have additional needs, and support with some of the issues you may be facing.
