Mental Health and Wellbeing

Like bodily health, we all have Mental Health.

Our mental health can fluctuate throughout our lives and like our bodies, must be be nurtured and cared for.

Being aware of and talking about our Mental Health struggles is one of the best ways to help us deal with it.

At St Cleopas we regularly take part in a number of lessons to raise their understanding of Mental Health.

Tell me about an intervention you don’t like.
Why?
I’ll tell you about the intervention I don’t really like is the phone because lots of people and family don’t talk as much about things when they are in company. Many people like being on the phones all the time.So,  put your phones away and have a family discussion what would your invention be and why?  Can you judge a book by its coverhttps://www.thephilosophyman.com/brainsqueezers
