Mental Health Awareness

Emily and Tia are two of many students who have been making pom-poms to promote Time to Talk day on 7th Feb and to raise awareness of mental health issues in young people. We wanted to reduce the stigma attached to mental health issues and to encourage people to talk about how they feel. The pom pom making sessions were at lunchtimes.

 The pom pom display is to raise awareness as well as to splash some colour and joy into winter and to symbolise that no matter how bad we may feel at times, light and colour and hope will always come back into our lives.
