Youth Mental Health Day

By Clair Hill - September 27th, 2023 | Posted in Article

This year Carew Academy celebrated Youth Mental Health Day focusing on the theme to ‘Be Brave’. Whether building confidence in facing difficult situations, building social confidence through learning to work together on team tasks, or learning to have the courage to fail by doing something new no matter what the outcome, being brave can mean something different to everyone.

In classes we discussed what it takes to be brave and what small steps we can do in school, in life, or at work experience to be brave, and how achieving even small steps can help us feel great!

Some examples from students were:

Saying sorry

Catching a spider and letting it out in the garden

Applying for a job in the local shop

Trying cheerleading

Going to Jamie’s Farm

Trying a new food
