Stockport Academy Celebrates World Mental Health Awareness Day

Student newsletter write Kaitlynn reports on how we celebrated this year's World Mental Health Awareness Day...

October 10th was World Mental Health Day, and our school celebrated it by having a non-school uniform day! Much to everyone’s delight, we had to come in with one yellow item of clothing.  

But, non-uniform wasn’t the only great benefit of this important day – we also received a form task. We were given a hand and on every finger, and had to write who you could speak to if you were down - people like friends, family and teachers.  

Not only that, but at break times free packets of sweets were given out, along with a small slip of paper, advertising the after-school drop-ins. 

The whole point of the day was to let everyone know that its ok not to be ok. In fact, one out of four people struggle with mental health issues, so you are never alone. Always speak out about it to people you trust, such as teachers, friends and family. 

If you are struggling or worried about anything, the school nurse (Ms H Flinn) is available on Mondays and Wednesdays - 1:00 to 1:30 and a super helpful display board is located in the atrium next to the dance studio!
