Mental Health and Wellbeing

 

Why we must never stop talking about children and young people’s mental health

Better mental health starts with a conversation. Achieving that first step – mustering the courage to share something so deeply personal and troubling – needs support, understanding and encouragement. This is especially true for children and young people. If you have any concerns about a child's mental health or wellbeing we are here to help and if we cannot we will signpost you to those who can.

 

If you think you may need help in any way please contact our DSL (Designated Safeguarding Lead : Mrs N Wood) as soon as possible.

If you are in a crisis

It is important to keep yourself safe. If you feel suicidal or have hurt yourself; let an adult know as soon as you can. It may be that the safest place for you to be assessed is through A&E at the hospital.

You can talk to somebody directly 24 hours a day at:
