By the time I leave secondary school I should know:


• how to talk about my emotions accurately and sensitively, using appropriate vocabulary.

• that happiness is linked to being connected to others.

• how to recognise the early signs of mental wellbeing concerns.

• common types of mental ill health (e.g. anxiety and depression).

• how to critically evaluate when something I do or I am involved in has a positive or negative effect on my own or others’ mental health.

• the benefits and importance of physical exercise, time outdoors, community participation and voluntary and service-based activities on mental wellbeing and happiness.
