Emotional Health & Wellbeing

Emotional Health and Wellbeing covers the following areas: exploring what influences your self-esteem, different approaches to managing feelings, and mental health.

Social and emotional wellbeing creates the foundations for healthy behaviours and educational attainment. It also helps prevent behavioural problems (including substance misuse) and mental health problems. That’s why it is important to focus on the social and emotional wellbeing of children and young people.
