When you have good mental health you:
- Feel loved, safe and secure
- Feel positive about yourself most of the time
- Are kind to yourself during tough times or when things don’t go the way you want
- Feel ok about challenges and trying new things
- Enjoy life and time with family and friends
- Can manage sad, worrying or angry feelings and bounce back through times you find tricky
Some things that may cause your mental health to suffer:
- Falling out with a friend
- Social media
- Worries at home or at school
Here at New Moston Primary School, we give you a voice and a place where you can be heard.
All adults at our school care about you; there is always someone to listen. Speaking to an adult you feel safe with will make worries feel lighter; if you are not ready to do this, a friend could help you by sharing your worry with an adult in school. Remember that all our adults are here to help.
Mr Kinch, Mrs Kelly-Rimmer and Miss Slack in the L.I.N.C are our pastoral team and you can always speak with them too if you feel unhappy or unsafe.
