Pupil mental health

Mental Health Conference

Our first Mental Health Conference will comprise workshop sessions, networking, and opportunities to get involved in developing the NEU Mental Health network in the North West.

Mental health awareness week

This year’s Mental Health Awareness week focuses on stress, a subject young people are all too familiar with. With mental health issues on the rise we need to look at the root cause of why so many students are finding it difficult to cope.
