Wellbeing and Mental Health Resources at David Game College
The wellbeing of our students at the College is of paramount importance to us as healthy and focused students, with a positive outlook, make a huge difference to their general happiness and academic progress. We want all our students to be ambitious and adopt a resilient approach to challenges and setbacks, using them as a learning curve and experience they can reflect on and move forward. With this in mind, below is a list of courses and learning resources that can be easily accessed.
Apps and websites:
Childline – Calm Zone www.childline.org.uk/toolbox/calm-zone
This is an online hub full of calming techniques and resources for young people to help them feel better when they feel anxious, scared or sad.
Recovery Record www.recoveryrecord.co.uk
Recovery Record is a great app for anyone recovering from an eating disorder and wanting to develop a more positive body image.
The headspace app makes meditation simple to learn and apply. It helps you develop mindfulness just using the app a few minutes a day.
Efficacy provides education on depression and the best strategies for managing the symptoms using a CBT Self-help Guide.
David Game College is committed to promoting your wellbeing and mental health.
