Well-being is about the things we can do to look after our own mental health. Sometimes, using self-help strategies can help with well-being. Health care professionals have designed some strategies for young people to use (you can see the process in this self-care infographic).
We’re sharing these strategies with you to help you to manage your wellbeing. It’s up to you to decide what helps. If it works, keep doing it. If it doesn’t, stop and try something else.
These activities are not a substitute for seeing a mental health professional and we would always suggest you talk to someone you trust if you need to, perhaps your tutor, Head of house or Nurse. Sometimes we need outside help and advice. Getting help is good. No-one should feel bad about it. That’s what this link is about.
