Mental health problems affect one in four of us, yet people are still afraid to talk about it. Time to Talk Day encouraged everyone to talk about mental health.
This week our Anti-Bullying Ambassadors, Qasim, Nicole, Arslan, Lela and Pippa, organised events that encouraged students to talk to each other; Such as sitting with someone you’ve never spoken to before. They also put together chatterboxes, containing conversation starters, and gave away cakes.
There are lots of things you can do to support others even if you’re not talking; such as taking part in activities together, sending a text to let them know you’re thinking of them, or offers to help with day-to-day tasks.
