Health & Well-being Support
This Health and Well-being area contains useful information to help you understand and appreciate that your health and wellbeing is important. Not only does it enable you to learn successfully but it also helps to be independent, happy and healthy individuals. This page also contains information about a number of external agencies that can help.
If something is concerning you or if you have any questions, then it's important to talk to an adult you can trust. You can speak to a parent/carer, teacher, class tutor, head of year, inclusions officer or any member of the school's staff. We are here to help and support you.

The NHS ‘111 press option 2’ for mental health is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for all ages. People can use this number if they have an urgent mental health concern themselves or about someone they know.
By providing access to a mental health professional, without the need for a GP referral, it can help support people to manage a mental health crisis and in many cases be an alternative to attending emergency departments or calling the police.
The service can be accessed by calling NHS 111 and selecting ‘option 2’. Callers will be transferred to a dedicated member of a mental health team in their local health board area.
