St Peter's 13-18
On Friday 8 October, St Peter's Mental Health Team held a stall during break and lunchtime in reception to mark World Mental Health Day.
Staff and pupils were invited to pop by and learn about mental health and inequality but also an opportunity to speak out and spread the word. The team shared lots of free resources and badges and cookies were available to buy.
World Mental Health Day is observed on 10 October every year, with the overall objective of raising awareness of mental health issues and mobilising efforts in support of mental health. The official theme for this year is ‘Mental Health in an Unequal World’, as set by the World Federation for Mental Health.
The event was a great success and the stall raised £72.42! A donation will be made to York Mind, a mental health charity, from the funds raised.
