If you are seriously concerned about your child’s mental wellbeing, we advise that you make an emergency appointment with your GP who will be able to assist you. In the most extreme circumstances, you should visit your nearest A&E department who will provide you and your child with the support you need. 

We understand how unnerving and complex issues surrounding mental health can be, not only for our students but also for their families. Below you will  find some useful documents and also a list of useful websites that provide information, guidance and support aimed at young people and their families about mental health and wellbeing.  If you need hard copies of any of these documents, please email: enquiries@arrowsmith.wigan.sch.uk to request them.
