Feeling happy is a part of mental wellbeing. Feelings of contentment, enjoyment, confidence and engagement with the world are all a part of mental wellbeing. Self-esteem and self-confidence are, too. Sometimes we experience things that are difficult which impacts on our emotional wellbeing.
From time to time we all struggle with our emotional health and wellbeing. For some children and young people, it can be difficult to manage and understand their feelings. Young people might experience a wide variety of difficulties including low mood, difficulty sleeping, loss of appetite, exam stress, difficulty concentrating or might be avoiding school.
If you are experiencing any of this, the school health team may support you or refer you to another provider if appropriate. Our team works closely with the other emotional health and wellbeing specialist services.
You can self-referral or request your School or GP to refer in.
