Scotland – Health & Wellbeing

Mental and Emotional Wellbeing

 I am aware of and able to express my feelings and am developing the ability to talk about them.

 I know that we all experience a variety of thoughts and emotions that affect how we feel and behave, and I am learning ways of managing them.

 I understand the importance of mental wellbeing and that this can be fostered and strengthened through personal coping skills and positive relationships. I know that it is not always possible to enjoy good mental health and that if this happens there is support available.

 I am learning skills and strategies which will support me in challenging times, particularly in relation to change and loss.
