Must watch! Makes you think twice about Mental health
Matt Windle is an inspirational young man, with touching and relevant poetry. In 2007/08 he was Birmingham’s Young Poet Laureate. This poem talks about mental health and about the stigma that is built around mental illness. 'Mental isn't crazy it's to do with the mind'. He highlights how prevalent mental illness can be, it's happening to 1 in 4. Therefore, making even more imperative we get rid of the stigma and silence that has been built around Mental illness and we talk about it in school and on other platforms. Make sure people who need help aren't scared to go seek the help they need for fear of ridicule or exclusion. If peoples mental health is being effected then we need to ensure we talk about it and don't keep it hush. School is the perfect place to start talking about mental health and make it a norm. We spend so much time in school, there is no better place to start talking about and ask someone how they feel. Please share this video and make everyone think twice about mental health.
This is a collection of articles, news, videos which I have come across and thought it is worth sharing and recording for future reference. The topics of these posts will vary and there really is no theme, apart from the fact I find them to be thought provoking.
