Stress and mental health

Mental health is a hugely important consideration for young adults in today’s society.

We are seeing an ‘epidemic’ rise in the number of teenagers being diagnosed with poor mental health. In order to address this, we want to provide students and parents/carers with as much information as possible, practical strategies and knowledge of where to go for additional support.

This downloadable pdf document looks at how to deal with stress and how to manage positive mental health. The tips on this page are of particular help when facing examinations but are equally applicable to daily life.

It covers:

  • What is stress?
  • What are the physical and emotional signs of stress?
  • How to reduce stress
  • Positive self-talk
  • Stress indicators
  • Practical tips to reduce stress
  • Coping strategies
  • Social media
  • Fear of missing out (FOMO)
  • Face-to-face interaction
  • Bullying
  • Personal strategies for success
  • Where to get support and help

If you need any help or support, please talk to a member of staff.
