Exeter High School has opened a new safe space, The Den.
The area is linked with the HOPE video series by the West Tamar's Youth Advisory Council, which aims to raise awareness about key issues for young people.
Issues highlighted include body image, bullying, mental health and peer pressure.
The Den is geared towards providing a resource point for students to access support, health and wellbeing information and details for social workers, youth workers and peer mentors.
The safe space area was developed by year 10 students at Exeter High School, with the aim of building a better understanding of mental health for them and their peers.
West Tamar mayor Christina Holmdahl highlighted the importance of these kinds of resources.
"We want to erase the stigma of mental health through open conversation, mentorship and team building," Cr Holmdahl said.
