Young Minds Matter

❤️Don't suffer in silence❤️

As a Young Minds Matter School we are able to access professional support for our families.

During this difficult time it is really important that we look after our mental health and wellbeing.  It is only natural to feel worried and unsettled but if this prevents us from functioning or feeling like ourselves it is really important to speak to someone.  

Young Minds Matter can support children and their families over the telephone and can provide specialist advice for families around changes in behaviour, anxiety and low mood.  We have also created our own wellbeing packs that can be posted or sent digitally to families.  

You can contact them directly on;
