Wellbeing / Mental Health / Resilience

 Your wellbeing is made up of two parts;

Physical Health - the wellbeing of your body and Mental Health - the wellbeing of your mind.

Your mental health is all about how you are feeling, thinking, acting and how well you can cope with day to day life. We all have mental health 

Both your physical health and your mental health change throughout your life.


  • You feel great!
  • You’re just about OK
  • You can be a bit down and you’re not OK
  • Sometimes your mental health can get to the point where it’s not OK at all and it’s important to get some extra support.

But it’s not a straight line. Our wellbeing can change with ups and downs happening depending on what’s happening to us and around us. Sometimes it can feel a bit like being on a rollercoaster!


Lots of different things can affect our mental health and emotional wellbeing.

The affect can be positive or negative.

Changes in our wellbeing can happen at different times in our lives and sometimes we can have a really bumpy rollercoaster ride in just one day!

What is Resilience?

Resilience can help us cope when things get tough. Resilience helps us learn from set-backs and bounce forward.
