Mental Health & Wellbeing

"Just because no one else can heal or do your inner work for you, doesn't mean you can, should, or need to do it alone" 

- Lisa Olivera


At Priors Wood, we understand how important your mental health is.

Whether you are a pupil, relative or member of staff, we thrive to achieve good mental health for all.
