World Mental Health Day
Each year, the World Mental Health Organisation recognises World Mental Health Awareness Day
on October 10th. The event attempts to raise awareness of mental health issues around the world
and where possible show support for those suffering with mental health problems.
In recognition of World Mental Health Awareness Day, we invited Mindfulness teacher
Rachel Broomfield to deliver a Mindfulness session. Students took part in a number of activities which provided them with tools to help them cope with the stress of being a young person in the UK.
GCSE students participated in a sponsored silence throughout the day, helping raise money for a local mental health charity.
