Looking after your mental health - Factsheets

Please see below links to a range of evidence-informed fact sheets which are suitable for pupils trying to find out more information about mental health conditions and wellbeing. These have been created by local charity Extern. Extern provide a range of programmes for young people and their families across Northern Ireland.

BRA are proud to certify that, in association with the ONUS initiative, they are a registered SAFE PLACE and provide information and respond appropriately to signs of domestic abuse or violence.

As a Safe Organisation the School will:

  • Support the Safe Place Campaign Pledge: never to commit, condone or stay silent about domestic violence or abuse.
  • Provide a Safe Place for anyone affected by domestic violence or abuse to confidentially access information.
  • Acknowledge domestic violence is a problem that impacts on all of us a society, and will be prepared to play our part in supporting victims and state clearly to perpetrators that we will not tolerate abuse in our community.

For further information on ONUS and help with issues relating to domestic abuse and violence, visit www.onustraining.co.uk
