Mental Health Awareness Week

Dear Parent/Carer

This week is Mental Health Awareness week. One in ten children and young people aged 5 to 16 has a clinically diagnosed mental health disorder and around one in seven has less severe problems

Mental health affects how well we feel, and how we cope with the obstacles and challenges we face in life. 

Some young people experience mental health difficulties and the symptoms can interfere with their day-to-day life. Mental health difficulties can affect things like your concentration, your relationships and your ability to communicate with others or get to school. 

Mental health difficulties can affect anyone – it’s not the person’s fault and there is nothing to be ashamed of.

We have attached a list of mental health services that are available both locally and nationally.  Some of the services, such as KOOTH have apps which are more pupil friendly.

If you need any further help or advise then please contact us.
