Mental health and wellbeing
During the Covid-19 pandemic, it's important to have the right information. Getting news from unreliable sources can make you feel more upset and anxious, which is unhelpful when it comes to mental wellbeing. Visit nhsinform.scot/coronavirus for the most up-to-date and reliable information.
We have also partnered with Tree of Knowledge to provide mental health and wellbeing support to all pupils and staff across all 200 schools in Highland, through remote learning and beyond. All primary and secondary schools in Highlands have access to Treehouse; a groundbreaking online learning platform, for use at home or in classrooms, which addresses the challenges of the pandemic and develops positive mental health.
Thank you very much for your support and patience. Please do not hesitate to make contact with your own school for further clarification.
