Mental health and wellbeing

We all have times in our life when we have worries, stress or feelings of anxiety and talking about these issues may seem embarrassing and not really the type of thing you want to discuss with friends or family especially, when you’re not sure what the problem is. Listed below are local and national websites and support groups ready to help you.

Chat health

It allows you to anonymously get in touch with your school nurse and ask for support and advice to do with mental health and wellbeing, relationships, healthy eating and sexual health. Responses within 24 hours weekdays from 9am to 4:30pm (inclusive of school holidays).
