Over the past couple of weeks, we have been focusing on the topic of Mental Health in our Living and Learning sessions. In class we have had numerous discussions about what we understand by the term ‘Mental Health’, how do we recognise our own feelings and those of others, and what we can do to provide “self-care”.
We have also explored the importance of talking about our feelings. Talking about our feelings, whether they’re big or small feelings, is a great way to have good mental health. Sometimes it’s starting to talk about things which is the hardest thing to do. As a group we explored our ‘support circles’, recognising those individuals who we have close connections with that we may be able to talk to in times of need.
