Young Derry people urged to mind their mental health after tomorrow's GCSE results


Derry students receiving their GCSE results on tomorrow have been urged to mind their mental health.

Sinn Féin Education spokesperson Karen Mullan said“Young people across the north will receive their GCSE results this week and I would like to congratulate them all on their efforts and hard work.

“For many students, it will be the happy end to months of hard work, but for some it won't be so positive.

“Don’t worry and don’t stress. If you don’t get the grades you were predicted or wanted, there's lots you can do. Take time to relax and unwind from the stress of it all.

“I think we all need to remember that school is really important, but not at the cost of your mental health.

“If you do feel down or anxious, speak up, or talk to someone about how you feel. There are plenty of organisations out there which can help you. Don’t be afraid to reach out for help and support.”
