Mental Health and Wellbeing

At Morecambe Road we understand how mental health and wellbeing can impact on a young person’s confidence and self esteem. It is estimated that 50% of mental health problems are established by the age of 14, so recognising and managing them in schools can make all the difference to outcomes for young people.
