Emotional Health and Well-being

Emotional Health and Wellbeing

As a College we are continually looking at ways to support young people with their emotional health and wellbeing.  In order to do this we need to work together with parents/carers and acknowledge the pressures on young people within education and society.

Problems with anxiety are really common. According to the charity Anxiety UK, as many as 1 in 6 young people will experience an anxiety problem at some point in their lives.

The links below provide information for both students and parents/carers.
