Mental Health Awareness Week

Published Thursday 20th of May 2021 08:12:47 AM

During the week beginning 10th May, we celebrated Mental Health Awareness Week, hosted by the Mental Health Foundation. Every child and staff member were given a green pin ribbon badge to wear. The green ribbon is the international symbol for mental health awareness.

The theme for the week was ‘Connect with Nature’. An exciting week of activities was planned for pupils in each year group including daily mindfulness walks, growing and studying plants and creative writing challenges. Each form participated in a Mental Health and Wellbeing workshop with Open View Education who specialise in theatre based workshops and online learning programmes for schools.

This was the 21st year of the Mental Health Foundation’s Awareness Week. The Chief Executive Mark Rowland said of the week “since the beginning of the pandemic, millions of us turned to nature to help us get through lockdowns and our research shows that good mental health depends on us being able to connect with nature in some way and its power in both prevention of and recovery from poor mental health.”
