Your Emotional Wellbeing and Mental Health
Your emotional wellbeing is just as important as your physical health. Good mental health allows us to develop the resilience to cope with whatever life throws at us and grow into well-rounded, healthy adults.
There are many ways you can make yourself feel better and get some help. Who will you speak with? Who is in your safety network? Remember from your Protective Behaviours sessions that you can "talk with someone about anything, even if it seems awful or small."
It is always important to talk to others about what's bothering us. Whether we are upset about something that has happened to us or are cross with someone, it is best not to let it stew. You can talk to your parents, someone in your family or an adult in school at any time. The Zones of Regulation charts in your classrooms are a good way of expressing how you are feeling and will help. You can use your toolkit to help you too.
Adults in School
You can talk to any adult at school if you have any worries or feel sad. You can talk to them at any time.
Adults out of School
There are other adults you can talk to outside of school. A safe adult can help you to explore these.
