In many ways, mental health is just like physical health: everybody has it and we need to take care of it.
Good mental health means being generally able to think, feel and react in the ways that you need and want to live your life. However, if you go through a period of poor mental health you might find the ways you're frequently thinking, feeling or reacting become difficult, or even impossible, to cope with. This can feel just as bad as a physical illness, or even worse.
At Mulgrave, we want to support children in understanding and appreciating this; recognising that we all respond to our experiences with our emotions, feelings, thoughts and behaviours. Therefore, helping children to recognise and understand that feelings and thoughts are linked to behaviour, and how a combination of all of these elements can impact on our mental health.
