Mental Health Awareness Week - 9th-15th May 2022 "Together we can tackle loneliness"
One in four adults feel lonely some or all, of the time. There’s no single cause and there’s no one solution. After all, we‘re all different! But the longer we feel lonely, the more we are at risk of mental health problems. Some people are also at higher risk of feeling lonely than others.
For Mental Health Awareness Week this year, the focus is on raising awareness of the impact of loneliness on our mental health and the practical steps we can take to address it.
As a school we are recognising this in a number of ways:
- Special assemblies on Mental Health Awareness
- Students can buy green ribbons in support of Mental Health Awareness for 50p with all proceeds going to the Mental Health Charity ‘Mind’. Please see Miss Thompson or Mr Robertson in school
- There will be drop-in sessions running after school from 3.45 – 4.30pm, if students would like to attend this, please come along to the network area
- Music will be played on arrival at student entrance to brighten up their mornings!
