Look after your mental health and well-being
Students – It’s important to take care of yourself and get the most from life. There are lots of practical ways to look after your mental health, such as:
- Do something you are good at
- Talk about your feelings
- Care for others
- Keep active
- Eat well
- Keep in touch with friends
You can probably think of lots of other ways to improve your well-being – why not share your ideas with your friends and family?
It's also really important to ask for help if you are feeling down or unhappy about how things are going for you. Don't let things get on top of you.
Teachers and other members of staff can help you find someone to talk to.
