Supporting Wellbeing and Mental health

At Bowland High School, we consider a child’s Mental Health and Wellbeing of paramount importance and will offer support to any children or families who are affected by these issues.
We recognise, however, that not all parents and guardians are aware of where to turn if they feel their child may have Mental Health issues and so, we have created the following as places to find information should you need to do so. Please click on the appropriate circle for further information.
