Top tips for positive mental health and well-being:
1) Make some time to do a fun and relaxing activity that you enjoy, every day.
Children at Chidlren Primary School know that there is always an adult in school with a listening ear. Talking about our worries, usually makes us feel a little lighter.
3) Self help.
Think about healthy diet, regular excercise, sticking to daily routines.
We would advise parents to do their own research about mental health and well-being at the first signs of concerns:
