This year, Mental Health Awareness Week focuses on the theme of “Anxiety”. Anxiety is a common emotion, and there are many things in life that can lead to feeling anxious. As an international school, we understand that moving abroad for your studies, preparing for exams, making new friends, are all things that can make our students feel anxious during their studies.
So, we’ve put together some resources, tools, and advice from our own students to help overcome these feelings and raise awareness.
Mental Health Award
Last year, The Worthgate School were selected as the winners of the ISA (Independent Schools Association) Award for “Excellence and Innovation in Mental Health and Wellbeing” for our culture of care that is at the forefront of the minds of staff and students alike.
There are many resources available online to help manage feelings of anxiety. We have collected our favourites from the Mental Health Awareness Week website for you to explore. Including: wellbeing activities, breathing exercises, mental health tips and more.
Throughout the week, we will be sharing more content over on our social media channels for Mental Health Awareness. Including photos of student activities, more advice and tips, and videos! Follow us on TikTok, Instagram, Facebook and Linkedin to see more.
