It is World Mental Health Day 2019 on Thursday 10 October and at Barr Beacon School will be raising the profile of mental health in many different ways.
We will be helping to tackle the stigma of mental health through year group assemblies and PSHE lessons.
Pupils will be developing an understanding of what mental health is and what support is available both in and outside of school. They will be learning different strategies to support mental health as well as taking part in our weekly ‘Mindfulness Monday’ activities.
Mental health ribbons will be on sale for 25p. The school Mental Health Champions will also be holding a ‘Tea and Talk’ session at break time on this day. All monies raised will be donated to the Mental Health Foundation.
