Everyone needs to know how to look after their mental health. The 5 ways to wellbeing are a set of actions that can be used every day to help do this.

For fun ideas to put an extra spring in your step watch the Dudley Take 5 films. The Big Steps film is great for those in Year 4 upwards or if you’re in Year 6 watch the Dudley Take 5 Steps Up film to hear the real life experiences of Year 7 students and their move to secondary school.

If you are worried about your child and would like some advice or support you can speak to your GP, your child’s class teacher or their School Nurse. Every school in Dudley has a School Nurse and the school receptionist will have their name and contact details.
