Support Outside of School

Emotional and Mental Well-being defines how we feel, think and relate to ourselves and others. This has an impact on how we understand the world around us. Positive Mental Health improves our ability to manage, communicate, and form and sustain relationships.

Coping with other changes in our lives are also affected such as bereavement, transition or parental divorce. Statistics show that one in four people will experience Mental Health problems at some point in their lives.

You can talk to the following people if you feel overwhelmed by things:

  • Form Tutor
  • Head of House
  • Mr Gunn
  • Parents
  • Friends
  • A person you trust

Also, there are different services and organisations available to give you the support you need.
