Anti-Stigma Ambassadors

Meet our new Anti-Stigma Ambassadors who took an active part in today’s workshop on Mental Health Awareness. They explored the statement ‘Describe what mental health means to you’. They realised the power that words can have. Working with pupils from other primary and secondary schools they discussed how emotions such as anger and fear are felt in the body. As ambassadors, how will they spread messages such as ‘It’s okay not to be okay’ or ‘Don’t bottle it up’? Together they will be working on an action plan for our school. Thanks to Yvonne from the Derbyshire @BeAMateCampaign.
