During May, Ryedale School marks Mental Health Awareness Week
What is Mental Health Awareness Week?
The Mental Health Foundation has hosted Mental Health Awareness Week in the second week of May since 2000. In previous years the week has focused on how mindfulness, anxiety, sleep deprivation and relationships can impact our mental health. In 2017 the theme will be ‘surviving to thriving’. The week sets out to raise awareness of the effects of poor mental health and what we can do as individuals to increase the status of our own mental health.
The Student Council organise a range of activities and events that take place across the school to mark this event, including;
- Form time presentations
- Informative posters around school
- Form time activities
- Displays around school
Student Council reps also present to their peers about the importance of marking this event.
