Mental Health Awareness
National Mental Health Awareness Week 2020 came at a very appropriate time as we are all having to find ways to cope and carry on in challenging times.
In recognition of National Mental Health Awareness Week last week, CCF students participated in a variety of home learning activities to raise awareness of mental health and wellbeing, many being fun but also very thoughtful and reflective.
Our Psychology students were set the task to create a poem, rap or advert to raise awareness.
To the left is Oskar's painting, representing the brain, thoughts and insight into someone with mental health. He has been creative using the metaphor of a tree. The roots represent the individual hidden by the tree which represents the mind and day to day thoughts of someone suffering from mental health problems and their constant need to question what is right in reality and what is not. To the right is Afrah's drawing.
Below is a video with a poem that was written and voiced over by Orin Daley in Year 12. This creative piece focuses on coping with mental health during the current pandemic.
Finally, here's a selection of poems from Ahmed, Damien and Isaac in Year 10, created for the Mental Health topic they are currently covering in Psychology.
