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.

Social Wellbeing

I recognise that each individual has a unique blend of abilities and needs. I contribute to making my school community one which values individuals equally and is a welcoming place for all.
