first_imgStudents in Donegal are being urged to put their mental health first ahead of Leaving Cert results on Tuesday. The Samaritans is making the call, as nearly 60,000 Leaving Cert pupils prepare to get their marks.Over the last five years, Samaritans volunteers have answered almost three million calls for help, with demand on email and text message increasing month on month.The charity said their mental health is more important than grades, and they should ask for help if they are unhappy with their results.Director of the Waterford branch of Samaritans Anne Woodworth is urging them to think of how much they have achieved. She said: “Read them positively because they have been working towards this for six years and it’s a big-time in their life.“If we only look at the things that didn’t happen, we tend to see things negatively and it’s terribly important for all of us…to look at the things that have been achieved.”Students urged to put mental health first ahead of Leaving Cert results was last modified: August 12th, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img
