What can I do to improve my own Mental Health & Wellbeing?


Good mental health is just as important as any other element of your health and looking after it should be a priority for all of us. A large number of mental health matters are either preventable or treatable.  This means that even if you are currently feeling low or suffering from mental health issues, there IS a pathway to a healthy, happy and productive way of life.


By including the 5 steps to wellbeing in your everyday lives, you can improve your Mental Health and Wellbeing.  Take a look at the 5 steps below and have a think about how you too can Connect, Be Active, Take Notice, Keep Learning and Give.  Remember… ‘We’ll Get Through This Together’.

Dear Parents and Carers
In these unprecedented times, we know everyone is spending more time online at home, including our children and young people. The Internet provides many benefits in keeping us all connected; however, for our children and young people especially, this can present more significant risks.
The online world can be a bit overwhelming at times but it is important we understand what our children are doing online so we can help them stay safe. The Department of Education Northern Ireland (DENI) Safer Schools App aims to help with this.
We are delighted to invite you to download the DENI Safer Schools App provided in partnership with Ineqe Safeguarding Group.
