What is Emotional Wellbeing?
Our mental health and emotional well being is a bit like a set of scales. When our ability to cope is equal to the challenges we face life feels okay but when things get too much and the challenges outweigh our ability to cope we can feel low, angry, confused, alone - perhaps all of these.
Children and Young People’s Mental and Emotional Health - Values and Guiding Principles New
Within the current context, professionals and services may be or feel less accessible. Change is happening around us all the time. In such circumstances, it is important that we have some of our own resources to employ to continue to support those we work with confidently. For these reasons, a set of Values and Guiding Principles for responding to the emotional wellbeing needs of children and young people has been developed to maintain the momentum and diligence with which the Children’s Workforce in Hertfordshire support their charges. We hope you find them helpful.
Keeping your cool
Stay in control by making time for as many of these things as possible. They work.
