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 life. One in six children and young people are likely to have a mental health problem – that’s one young person in each 6 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.
