Mental Health Resources

Welcome to our mental health resources!

We hope you find this webpage useful in directing you towards information, self-help, or ideas for your school or service in approaches to mental health. While we have tried to sort the resources to make it easier to find what you are looking for, there is inevitably some cross-over between the different areas. We are trying to keep this up-to-date, so please contact the psychological service if you know of any useful resources you think we should include on the site, or if you find any of our links aren’t working properly. This resource now includes a section of material related to the coronavirus pandemic and will be updated as new resources become available.

If you hover over the resources title at the top of the page you will find different sections including General mental health, Nurture and Attachment, Relationships and Behaviour. Simply click on the tab to open that page and view its content or use the search function to find related information.

We have noted suggested content and audience for each website or resource to help you find what you’re looking for. Please note this is only a guide.
