Respecting Aspiring Persevering

Mental Health Awareness Week

This week is Mental Health Awareness Week. If you, or someone you know, have been affected by mental health issues, please do have a look at the community page of our website, which can be found under the 'Parents' drop down tab.  You will find links to community groups, resources and advice lines that can offer support.


This year the focus for Mental Health Awareness Week is on connecting with nature. Nature is all around us. It might be a garden, a local park, a nearby beach or open countryside. Even in cities where nature can be harder to find, there’s things community gardens or courtyards to discover and explore. Look out for the unexpected – an urban fox on your way out for the early shift, changes in the weather or birdsong outside your window. Try to notice nature wherever you are, in whatever way is meaningful for you.
