GEORGE PINDAR SCHOOL IS PART OF

Stress & Mental Health

Mental health is a hugely important consideration for young adults in today’s society.

We are seeing an ‘epidemic’ rise in the number of teenagers being diagnosed with poor mental health. In order to address this, we want to provide students and parents/carers with as much information as possible, practical strategies and knowledge of where to go for additional support.

This downloadable pdf document looks at how to deal with stress and how to manage positive mental health. The tips on this page are of particular help when facing examinations but are equally applicable to daily life.

It covers:

  • What is stress?
  • What are the physical and emotional signs of stress?
  • How to reduce stress
  • Positive self-talk
  • Stress indicators
  • Practical tips to reduce stress
  • Coping strategies
  • Social media
  • Fear of missing out (FOMO)
  • Face-to-face interaction
  • Bullying
  • Personal strategies for success
  • Where to get support and help

If you need any help or support, please talk to a member of staff.

 

Online counselling and support service for children and young people

We are delighted to be working in partnership with Xenzone who have launched Kooth, a free online counselling and support service which is available to all children and young people across North Yorkshire for 11-18 years.

Kooth.com is a safe, confidential and non-stigmatised way for young people to receive advice, support and optional counselling on-line. Staffed by fully trained and qualified counsellors and available until 10pm each night, 365 days per year, it provides a much needed out of hours’ service for young people. The service offers easily accessible mental health and emotional well-being support to young people, covering a wide range of topics and issues such as exam stress, bullying, friendship issues.

On Kooth, young people can learn effective coping strategies to be able to deal with day to day life. Kooth is anonymous and free to use, making it a powerful early prevention and treatment resource which young people are keen to use: more than 95% of end of session questionnaires show young people would recommend Kooth to a friend. With no criteria to access the service, all young people are supported no matter how small of big the issue may be.

If you require any further information to enable you to learn more about our service and to feel confident in discussing Kooth.com with young people, please contact us at parents@xenzone.com. You can also find further information about our service on the website.
