Well-being and Mental Health
Feeling happy, safe and secure is important to everyone’s well-being and mental health.
Your mental wellbeing is about how you're feeling right now, and how well you can cope with daily life. Our wellbeing can change from moment to moment, day to day, or month to month.
Good wellbeing doesn't mean you'll always be happy. It's normal to feel sad, angry, anxious or low sometimes. But if you have poor wellbeing for a long time you might start to find things more difficult to cope with.
It can affect the way we feel about ourselves and others, and about the things we face in our lives.
It is important you know what to do if these sad, angry, low mood and anxious feelings stay with you over time. Always know that you can and should ask for help at any time.
Think of an adult you trust either at home, in school, within your family or friends that you could go to if you need help or to talk about how you are feeling.
However you are feeling and how your wellbeing is at the moment, there are things you can do to look after and improve it.
