Mental Wellbeing

We all have times when we have low mental wellbeing, where we feel stressed, upset or find it difficult to cope.

You are going to have good and bad days. You are going to have lessons that you are thriving in and some that you will find a real struggle. You will have days when you just want to be alone, when friends may upset you or let you down.

It is common to feel a mix of emotion during your time at Post 16. You are developing, learning and discovering who you are so go easy on yourself, take good care of both your physical and mental well-being and remember to talk to somebody if you need to.

Here at Outwood Post 16 Centre Easingwold we want to give our young people the necessary support to build resilience to achieve their good emotional health.

The aim of our work in our centre is to ensure that our students enjoy their time at the academy and are happy. There are many things that can impact on the emotional well-being of children; keeping up with studies, falling out with friends, and the pressures of social media. We want all our young people to have good emotional health, the skills and confidence to cope with change, be able to think through and solve problems, and ultimately achieve well and be happy.

Our academy is committed to the principles of securing emotional well-being, to allow every young person to have the best possible experience and outcomes throughout their Post 16 journey.

As part of our drive to support the mental wellbeing of our children, the Outwood Mental Wellbeing website provides a comprehensive range of services available to them and their parents.
