Mental Health Ambassadors
As part of our ongoing work with EH4MH (Early Help for Mental Health), we now have 30 trained Mental Health Ambassadors in the College. Students from Year 7-10 participated in the four two hour sessions where they learnt about anxiety/stress and strategies on how to become more resilient. Brainstorming on what the College already provides was the initial task, then over the next sessions the students discussed how they could add to this provision; and how we could all stay mentally fit and well as a community. The students were a joy to work with, they showed commitment and maturity during the discussions and I look forward to working with them on our up and coming projects for the College.
