Mental Health and Wellbeing Students
Welcome to our students’ section of the Wellbeing page
At school we have a dedicated team of people who are here to offer advice and support if you, or someone you care about, may need it.
15% of teenagers experience difficulties with their mental health and at Tibshelf we want you to feel you can talk about this without being stigmatised.
1 in 10 young people experience a ‘diagnosable’ mental health condition.
That’s 3 in every average classroom.
