World Mental Health Day
10 October 2017 14:03
Today is World Mental Health Day. One objective of the fabulous Student Services department here at Pinewood is to raise awareness of mental health issues in our school and the local community.
So, here's how we kicked off today:
Secondary students had the chance to watch two informative and reflective videos about depression and panic attacks.
Additionally, after a discussion on Mental health and how people can best find support and maintain their mental health, secondary students shared a YOUnique story, which was either a personal story or about someone they know that is related to mental health problems. Students were very reflective and felt comfortable to open up.
Now, our Elementary students are working on a project creating posters with the qualities of a good friend. Having a strong, supportive and caring friendship is important throughout our life, in order to overcome difficulties, think positive and feel loved.
