With the right support and care most of us can manage the ups and downs of life and bounce back from setbacks. However there are times when we might become mentally unwell or a member of our family becomes unwell. When we are physically unwell we go to the doctors and think nothing of getting help for our illness. Mental ill health is no different. Sometimes we might need that extra bit of help from a trained professional to get us back on track.
At school we are not trained mental health professionals but we do aim to signpost parents to organisations who can help when life gets tough and our mental ill health suffers. Every time we hear of an organisation who can support mental ill health, we will provide a link to their website.
It’s been an anxious year for many adults, children and young people alike. We know many of you are worried about the impact of the pandemic on your children.
