Emotional wellbeing

The emotional wellbeing of our young people matters.

It’s normal for young people to face emotional challenges growing up, and their mental health is as important as their general physical health and wellbeing.

If you are a young person in Fife struggling with your mental health, check out the Our Minds Matter - Mental Health Information for Young People Wakelet for information on other services that can support you.

If you are a parent or carer in Fife, the Our Minds Matter - Mental Health Information for Parents and Carers in Fife Wakelet has some helpful ideas, websites and information to help you support children and young people's emotional wellbeing.

There are five key ways of keeping emotionally well. Have a look at the simple things we can all do to make a difference on our 'Five ways to look after your Wellbeing' page.

We recognise that everyone has a role to play in supporting young people to keep emotionally well and thinking about what might help when someone needs additional support with their mental health. We think it's important to think about what we do flexibly, with different layers of support and action from different people and services. You can find out more about these layers in Our Minds Matter Framework.
