Strategies allow us to have a plan of action to achieve a long-term or overall aim. This is the same in all areas of life, whether it be to get a new job, to buy a house or to support our mental wellbeing.
Having a variety of different strategies when it comes to mental wellbeing means you are more likely to find one that works for you when you need it most.
In this section you will find a nymber of different strategies and worksheets to help support you in times of need. We will be updating and adding new strategies into this section so please keep coming back and checking out what is new.
For strategies to work, we must go into using them with a growth mindset and not a fixed mindset. Whilst they might not work instantly and we might find some of the techniques hard at first, with practice and a growth mindset in time you will find a handful of different techniques that you can draw on when you need them.
If you still feel there is nothing here to help you please speak to a member of the Wellbeing team for help in finding a strategy that will work for you.
Lots of students get support from their school when they’re going through a tough time. Young people can speak to anyone working in school about anything that’s bothering them, whether it is school-related or something different. At Trinity Academy Sowerby Bridge, we are happy to offer our students a range of emotional health and wellbeing services.
If you are struggling to cope on your own and you need support, there are people in school who you can talk to, in a safe and non-judgemental environment. Our wellbeing team offers two types of in-school support, including 1:1 support sessions with a Child Protection and Wellbeing Officer and 1:1 counselling sessions with a School Counsellor. If you’d like to know more about in-school support, speak to your Year Leader or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
