Mental health

Looking after your mind is just as important as looking after your body.

Stress and anxiety about exams, work, college, relationships and peer pressure can all affect your mental health and can lead to depression.

Talking about your feelings to a parent, friend or relative or an adviser, such as a school counsellor, often helps.

You may wish to talk to a member of the teamif you or someone you know are suffering from more serious mental health problems. You can access our clinical psychologist who can help.

This could include:

  • self-harm
  • addictions
  • eating disorders
  • depression
  • feeling suicidal
  • dementia (parent or grandparent)
  • schizophrenia

Seek help as soon as possible to get the support you need.

Confidential support is available from your GP and teachers who can refer to CAMHS (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services) if necessary.
