Wellbeing & Mental Health - Students

I would like to contact someone at the school

“Mental health is a state of well-being in which every individual realises his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to her or his community.”

Mental health is the way we think and feel. We all go through times when we feel worried, confused or down. Mental health problems are when difficulties get in the way of how we think or feel. This can mean that we find it hard to cope with family life, relationships, school or the wider world.
