Mental Health and Wellbeing

Your Mental Health and Wellbeing


Mental health is the social and emotional wellbeing of individuals and communities.

Having good mental health does not mean you feel happy all of the time but rather it’s a state of overall wellbeing.

Having good mental health enables us to:

  • Enjoy life
  • Cope with and ‘bounce back’ from stress and sadness
  • Be able to set and fulfil goals
  • Have the capability to build and maintain relationships with others.


Many people try hard to maintain their physical health but forget to look after their mental health which is just as important.


Some things that help to keep us mentally healthy are:

  • a good night's sleep
  • good nutritious food
  • drinking plenty of water
  • regular exercise and fresh air
  • talking to friends and family
  • mindfulness and meditation.


If you are feeling sad  or unable to cope with every day problems, please talk to someone.  Below is a list of useful services which may be of some help to you.

If you're under 19, you can also call 0800 1111 to talk to Childline. The number will not appear on your phone bill.


Here at Audley Junior School the following adults are qualified in Mental Health First Aid: Neil Holden and Melanie Payne. Our children are taught about mental health and well-being as well as being provided with useful strategies to maintain healthy minds as well as healthy bodies.


Just as we remind pupils to eat a healthy 'Five A Day' to keep their bodies healthy, we also, as a school practice the 'Five Ways to Wellbeing' to build simple strategies to support mental health.
