1. Children and Young People

Over the next few weeks and months while the schools are closed, there is a Wellbeing Service for the children and young people in Stirling. The Wellbeing Service is there to talk to on the phone or contact through email if you are feeling worried, frustrated or anxious about COVID 19, isolation and impact on relationships, or your exams/education. 

There are 3 different ways you can contact someone in our team:

– Mind of My Own (message us)

– The Wellbeing Line (phone us)

 

Mind of My Own

While schools are closed, we know that you might not be able to speak to a teacher or another important adult at school that you might usually check-in with. This might be your pupil support teacher, your form tutor or your class teacher. If you feel like you would like to check in with someone, you can use Mind of My Own to alert us. A teacher from our virtual pupil support team will get back to you. To find out more information click here or click below to get started:
