Royal High School Bath will be raising awareness about the mental health issues that can affect young people in today’s society next week (3 – 7 February) as part of Children’s Mental Health Week. We are marking this with a number of initiatives and PSHE-driven talks across both the Senior and the Prep Schools. Throughout the week there will be a focus on healthy eating and fuelling the brain with appropriate nutrients in the dining room. We will also be having a ‘Reading Week’ instead of setting students formal written homework.
On Monday 3 February we are delighted to welcome The Charlie Waller Memorial Trust to the school, a charity set up to support young people struggling with mental health. They will deliver a series of talks to all students on mental health issues and how to overcome them including How to develop resilience, How to stay sane; a mental health first aid kit for students, Exam stress and how to cope, The dangers of perfectionism, Exam stress and how to cope.
We hope that our students will find this week both informative and helpful, but also full of practical strategies that they can use to build their own mental resilience in our ever-demanding world.
