Welcome to our wellbeing page.

The charity Mind says Mental wellbeing describes your mental state – how you are feeling and how well you can cope with day-to-day life.

Our mental wellbeing is dynamic. It can change from moment to moment, day to day, month to month or year to year.

If you have good mental wellbeing you are able to:

  • feel relatively confident in yourself and have positive self-esteem
  • feel and express a range of emotions
  • build and maintain good relationships with others
  • feel engaged with the world around you
  • live and work productively
  • cope with the stresses of daily life
  • adapt and manage in times of change and uncertainty

This page is to support staff, students, parents and carers; who need some support.  It does not replace counselling or talking to a professional, however might give some insight into why you are feeling the way you do, where to go for further support and to help while waiting for your first counselling or group session within school or with an outside agency.

What is anxiety?

Anxiety is what we feel when we are worried, tense or afraid – particularly about things that are about to happen, or which we think could happen in the future. Anxiety is a natural human response when we perceive that we are under threat. It can be experienced through our thoughts, feelings and physical sensations.

You can also make an appointment with your GP (doctor) who can help you and refer you to a service which can further support you.

Remember if you feel you are an immediate danger to yourself or someone else please speak to a member of staff in school, parent, carer or friend.  There is always someone to talk to and can support you.

We have trained counsellors in school who you can be referred to by your tutor, head of house or SENCO.  If you need further support we can refer you on to an outside agency.

If you are a member of staff who needs support you can speak to Mrs Shinn or Mrs Sharp who are qualified counsellors, who can signpost you to the appropriate support.

 

You are not alone.
