Depression and Anxiety
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 as it can change from moment to moment, day to day, month to month or year to year.
We all have times when we have low Mental Wellbeing, where we feel stressed, upset or find it difficult to cope.
There are some common life events that may affect your Mental Wellbeing:
Loss or bereavement.
Issues at school.
Worries about money.
Everyone deserves to feel good and there are steps you can take to maintain and improve your Mental Wellbeing:
Build positive relationships.
Take time for yourself.
Look after your mental health.
Look after your physical health.
What can you do in school to gain Mental Wellbeing?
