World Mental Health Day

Thursday 10th October was World Mental Health Day. Thousands of schools, offices, companies and community groups raise vital funds for YoungMinds. Oriel High School is one of those schools supporting children and young people’s mental health on World Mental Health Day.

YoungMinds are involved in projects ranging from preventing mental illness from developing to improving early intervention and care for those living with a mental health problem.

At Oriel we held a cake sale for YoungMinds #HelloYellow campaign, supporting young people’s mental health. With every cake sold students were given a book mark showing supportive messages and top tips for good mental health.

We were also running a series of assemblies for students during the week looking at the issue of Mental Health.
