Well Being

Mental health and wellbeing is very important and there are plenty of steps you can take to keep healthy.

Everyone's mental wellbeing can vary from day-to-day, so when you're not feeling great, it can feel even harder to take action to benefit your wellbeing.

There are plenty of small steps we can take to improve our mental wellbeing. According to the British Medical Association, research shows that there are many benefits of taking action to support your wellbeing, things like:

  • Greater self-confidence & control
  • Improved quality of life
  • Healthier lifestyle habits
  • Better understanding of your own health

We have a range of resources below to help you take action and support your mental wellbeing.

Here at HOP we are passionate about offering exciting opportunities to inform you about your future possible pathways and to allow you to see your potential. Our role is to deliver informative sessions and workshops relating to Further and Higher Education opportunities.

We are not trained mental health practitioners; however, we actively encourage you to notice and take care of your own mental wellbeing. We are aware that there may be areas that you find difficult or you wish to talk about in more detail. If you feel that you need help to work through what’s on your mind, then we would actively encourage you to reach out to trained providers who are there to support you.

Below is a list of just some of the agencies that are trained to listen and offer support:

Childline: 0800 1111 (free and won’t show up on phone bills (UK))

NSPCC: 0800 1111 (free and won’t show up on phone bills (UK))

Samaritans: 116 123 (free and won’t show up on phone bills (UK))
