Well-being Support

The emotional well-being of students, staff, parents and carers is crucial to living a happy, successful and healthy life. There are times, however, when we all need a little support in achieving this.

There is a vast amount of support online that is free to access, and offers guidance, advice, support and tips on how to deal with mental illnesses like anxiety and depression. This support ranges from case studies to helpful hints, and also offers phone numbers in case this support is required.

The online support organisations below are some of the many ways we can extend the range of support available to our school and wider community.  Please click on the organisation’s name to visit their website.
