Hi everyone! Welcome to this weeks web chat on positive mental health! :) We all have mental health as we all have physical and emotional health and it is important to look after all three. Has anyone got any ideas of how we can promote our mental health?

How about trying something new? Maybe baking a cake, joining a group, volunteering, learn a new skill or a language, bake a cake?...

It is really important for us to keep a balance of our emotional, mental and physical health. That means getting enough good quality sleep, good diet and fluid, work hard and make sure you rest and have chill time! Exercise is also important,
Don't keep worries in your head, find someone you trust and feel safe with to talk to. Nothing is to small or too awful to tell someone :)

Anyone got an suggestions on how to maintain positive mental health? :)

We all have the right to feel safe all of the time. So it is important to find people that you feel safe with and can trust. People you could talk to are:
-family and friends
-school nurse
Any other ideas? :)

Remember to look after yourselves and stay safe. If you feel you can't talk to someone about your mental health then try some of the following websites:
- Young Minds
- if you need to talk to someone there is Child Line and Samaritan's
- And don't forget you can see your school nurse confidentially! :)
