Mental and emotional wellbeing
· 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.
