Mental Health

Our mental health is an extremely important part of our overall well-being. Where physical health is about how the body works, mental health is about how the mind works. This includes the way we feel, think, behave and cope with the things that happen in life, big or small.

Many people struggle with their mental health at some point in their lives. One in six children and young people are likely to have a mental health problem – that’s one young person in each six-person friendship group! (The Children’s Society, 2021). When our mental health is poor, many things in life can become difficult, tiring, upsetting and lonely. If you are worried about your mental health, there are things you can do to improve the way you feel and help you cope.

Further Help

If you are struggling to cope on your own and you need support, there are people in school who you can talk to, in a safe and non-judgmental environment. Our wellbeing team offers two types of in-school support, including 1:1 support sessions with a Child Protection and Wellbeing Officer and 1:1 counselling sessions with a School Counsellor. If you’d like to know more about in-school support, speak to your Year Leader or email tasb-wellbeing@grammar.trinitymat.org.
