Mental Health Matters

We welcomed representatives from the national charity ‘Mental Health Matters.’ The charity’s aims are to promote the wellbeing of persons who are experiencing mental or physical health problems or illnesses; however those problems or illnesses have arisen. Mental health and wellbeing are an important topic that our students know well, and the charity supported this understanding by talking about the mental health issues young people can face in their formative years, including – anxiety, stress, anger, and low mood as well as the factors that can cause these emotions such as exams, relationships, and social pressures. Our students were then reminded how they can help deal with these often-complex emotions as well as how and where to seek help to support their long-term wellbeing.
