At Fir Tree, the mental health and well-being of our children, staff and families is very important to us.
Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices. Mental health is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood.
The five ways to well-being are:
Connect - connect with people around you.
Be active - find an activity that you enjoy and make it a part of your life.
Keep Learning - learning new skills can give you a sense of achievement and a new confidence.
Give to others - even the smallest can count, whether it is a smile, a thank you or a kind word.
Be mindful - be more aware of the present moment, including your thoughts and feelings, your body and the world around you. Some people call this awareness 'mindfulness'. It can positively change the way you feel about life and how you approach challenges.
