World Mental Health Day 2018

Mental Health is often an area that people don’t talk about.  This may be stem from the fear of the stigma and discrimination that can come from opening up about their mental health.

Many people don’t even feel comfortable talking about their feelings. But it’s healthy to know and say how you’re feeling.

Today, Cowley Sixth Form students and staff stood together to promote positive messages about Mental Health.  The day provides an opportunity for everyone to have a conversation about their mental health and to look out for others who may be struggling to find their voice.
