‘A person’s condition with regard to their psychological and emotional well-being.’ Mental Health can be both positive and negative and can be as simple as having a bad day.
We want everyone in our SESC community to feel safe, secure and supported. At SESC, we understand that putting mental health and wellbeing first in all we do is essential.
