Most of the time you are feeling ok about many aspects of your life.
However, like everyone, there are times when you experience ups and downs. Sometimes
there are clear reasons for the changes in your mental health, but at other times, the reasons
are less obvious. You will probably find that any experiences of low mood pass quite
quickly and you soon feel yourself again.

Self Help Ideas:

  • Regular exercise
  • Eating a variety of healthy foods and drinking plenty of water
  • Having approximately 9 hours of sleep
  • Spending time with family and friends
  • Having a balanced lifestyle with school-based and enjoyable activities
  • Mindfulness

Currently, it seems as if you might be experiencing low mood and heightened anxiety. You’re probably finding it hard to concentrate on school work or other areas of your life because of the stress you are experiencing.
Furthermore, your lack of sleep and low energy levels will be making the anxiety a lot worse and you are finding it hard to share your thoughts and feelings with friends and family.
Please remember that what you are experiencing isn’t ‘abnormal’ or ‘unnatural’; everyone experiences stress at some point in their life and 1 in 4 people have a mental health disorder. Although it may seem really difficult to ask for help, research has found that people start to feel better when they share their feelings with someone else.

Self Help Ideas:

  • Regular exercise
  • Eating a variety of healthy foods and drinking plenty of water
  • Having approximately 9 hours of sleep
  • Spending time with family and friends
  • Having a balanced lifestyle with school-based and enjoyable activities
  • Mindfulness
  • Discussing your feelings with close friends or family members

Services Available in School:

There are a range of support services available at AGGS and outside of school:

Based on your responses, it is important that you speak to somebody about how you’re feeling. Although it may seem really difficult to ask for help, perhaps as you fear that others won’t be able to understand how you’re feeling or you are convinced that the hopeless feelings you carry cannot be changed, mental health professionals will be able to provide you with the tools you need to recover and manage anxiety.
