Mental Health Workshops

Mental health charities Sunderland Mind and Kooth held two separate workshops for our students on the subject of wellbeing and mental health. 80% of young people with mental health needs agreed that the coronavirus pandemic had made their mental health worse and nearly half of 17-19 year-olds with a diagnosable mental health disorder has self-harmed or attempted suicide at some point, rising to 52.7% for young women. By raising awareness around mental health and providing as many avenues for support as possible, we hope that our Sixth Formers will always know when and where to turn to should they need help.
