18 Sep This month on School TV – Exam Stress
Students in their final year of school are considered a high-risk group for depression and anxiety. Sleep deprivation, diet, and social media are some of the biggest issues faced by this group of teens. Therefore it is vitally important that a student’s mental health is looked after as well as their physical health.
Keeping things in perspective for students and parents alike can help prevent everyone from getting overwhelmed. Although this final year is important, it is not necessarily the most important year of your child’s life.
There are many strategies that students can implement to help themselves. Parents can provide support, not only emotionally, but also practically by keeping their child well-nourished and encouraging physical activity.
If you do have any concerns about the wellbeing of your child, please contact the School’s Wellbeing Team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
