Mental Health Ambassadors

Twelve of our Sixth Form students have taken part in a 2 days training programme, run by CAMHS, a 2-day training programme with CAMHS, to enable them to become Mental Health Ambassadors. The students will be looking offer peer support to other students in school. Emily in Year 13 is applying to study Medicine at university: “This has been an enlightening although sometimes sobering experience, and has given us the skills we need to help our peers who may be struggling with mental health issues, from stress, to more severe conditions. We all have mental health, and we all need to look after ourselves, so I hope we will be able to support students how to do this in the best way.”
