Mental Health & Wellbeing
Self-help & Resources

At Selby High School, we aim to provide a range of opportunities for students to seek support from members of staff, pro-active advice and tips from our Student Wellbeing Portal and from their peers through the Wellbeing Ambassadors.  However, we are aware that for some individuals seeking support in school is still difficult.

This page is designed to help everyone find external resources and support to address any concerns that they have. It is not a comprehensive list, but includes organisations and people that we believe can help.  If you have any other organisations that you think we have missed please let us know at school and we will provide the additional links.



Having good mental health helps us relax more, achieve more and enjoy our lives more. There are simple things we can all do to look after our mental health and wellbeing. Take the quiz to get started today with a free plan, expert advice and practical tips.
