Mental Health and Wellbeing Sessions

This year, the school will be holding a series of mental health awareness events to help support parents and families understand the mental health issues faced by young people, and equip them with tools to build positive mental health. There are six sessions planned to run across the year, with one being held each month. The first session is on Tuesday 8th November 6.30-7.30pm in school and is an introduction to mental health awareness. The letter below provides more information. Please click to find out more!

Mental Health Support

“If you or somebody else is needing a bit of emotional support, it can be a little scary knowing what to Google, who to turn to and what you can do to manage your emotions in a healthy way. It’s important to talk to someone about how you are feeling. This could be a family member or friend, your GP or by calling a helpline.”

YoungScot has produced a brilliant new directory of mental health support organisations for young people and adults. Take a look at their webpage by clicking the link below:
