Could you be depressed?  What about your friends?  Visit the ‘Bright Knowledge’ website which leads to an online self-assessment on the NHS website.  Please talk to family, friends, your GP, teachers or the Sixth Form Team rather than suffer in silence.

Year 13

Watch the video about the level of personal support you can expect at universities:  student support services – Nottingham Trent uni.  For those not applying to university, please take a look at the Amazing Apprenticeships website or Unifrog VLE for live vacancies and career profiles.
