Looking after your wellbeing
Information for young people at QVS to help them with understanding mental wellbeing, and how to look after it.
If you've heard of the term 'mental wellbeing' and don't know what it is, or you want to find out how you can look after your wellbeing and feel good, this hub is here to help you learn more.
The QVS Wellbeing Hub supports students in undertstanding all aspects of wellbeing.
"In our hectic lives, we sometimes forget to check in with ourselves. Therefore, we sometimes don't realise our wellbeing is suffering until we are struggling because of it."
How can I look after my wellbeing?
However your wellbeing is at the moment, there are things you can do to look after and improve it.
What helps you now may not be the same as what helps you in the future.
Try what you feel is comfortable and right for you, at this moment.
"No matter what people say, self-care isn’t selfish. I’ve noticed than whenever I take self-care more seriously, it has a hugely positive impact on how I feel and act."
If you feel unable to keep yourself safe, this is an emergency. You can:
tell an adult you trust and ask them to call for help
text YM to YoungMind’s Crisis Messenger on 85258, and a counsellor will call you back to talk things through with you
call HOPELINEUK to talk to an adviser
or call 999 if you’ve hurt yourself, or feel like you may attempt suicide.
Mental health emergencies are serious. You are not wasting anyone's time.
