It is so important, more now than ever, to support our students in leading a healthy active lifestyle and helping to support them in having a #Healthy #Mind


What is mental health?

When our mental health is good, we feel positive about ourselves, enjoy being around others and feel able to deal with life’s challenges.

We all go through times when we feel worried, confused or down. But when it starts to feel difficult to do everyday things like hanging out with friends, getting work done or doing the things we normally enjoy, this could mean we have a problem with our mental health.

Mental health problems are things like depression, anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, eating disorders or psychosis, and dealing with these can be really tough. But with help from our friends, our family and professionals, we can find ways to overcome or live positively with these challenges. (Young Minds Website)
