SWIM – SUPPORT WITH INDIVIDUALS’ MENTAL HEALTH

There are plenty of different types of support out there and a Mental Health First Aider can help you access them.

Mental Health First Aiders and Mental Health Champions are a point of contact if you, or someone you are concerned about, are experiencing a mental health issue or emotional distress.  They are not therapists or psychiatrists but they can give you initial support and signpost you to appropriate help if required.

If you have any questions about Mental Health First Aid at Westbourne Academy, please contact one of the people listed here. You can email them or find them in school.
