Mental Health and Wellbeing

At Frome College we know that the positive mental health and well-being is vital to success both personally and academically. Mental health and well-being includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being and it affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices. Mental health and well-being is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through to adulthood. We know that it is likely that all members of our community will experience challenges to their mental health and well-being at some point. Whether this is for a short period of time or longer, there are lots of different ways in which the College can support you through any challenges that you might experience. Find out more here
