The Department of Education has launched the Mental Health Hub website. It has been developed to ensure advice is available to anyone who needs it, at any time. It is important that mental health support for our students is varied and accessible for everyone.
The Mental Health Hub is a useful toolkit for students, parents and teachers as it has some really practical resources, from tips on how to start a conversation with someone doing it tough to finding ways to improve their own mental fitness.
The website is broken down into three categories: information for parents, information for teachers and information for students.
