Mental Health Awareness week

From 10th – 16th May, Kings Brighton embraced the UK-wide Mental Health Awareness Week. A range of events were organised, including a cake sale to raise money for charity. and a visit from therapy dog Dinah.

The week began with a mouth-watering bake sale. Some of the students had taken time over the weekend to make some delicious cupcakes, which were then sold to staff and classmates in the canteen to raise money for specialist mental health charity, Mind.This was followed by a very special visit from Dinah, a therapy dog, who came in on Tuesday with retired teacher and owner Liz. Dinah was available for petting all through lunchtime, and was understandably popular!

On Wednesday, Enrichment Manager Kitt gave an important and insightful talk on depression and anxiety, and the week’s activities culminated with a beautiful and relaxing walk in the Sussex countryside. Students covered an impressive 13 miles in total, walking from Cuckmere Haven over the South Downs to the hill giant — the Long Man of Wilmington, and as a sponsored event, it also raised money for mental health charity Mind.
