Six of our young people have recently completed training to become a Mental Health Peer Educator. For Mental Health Awareness Month (February) they have organised a number of activities to raise awareness of the importance of talking, how to support your mental health and will provide specific information on anxiety, depression, self harm and eating disorders.
Our newly qualified MH peer educators are :
Isabella, Miles, Esme, Ruth and Emma in S3 and Eilidh in S6, and you can identify them by the badge they wear.
These are some of their thoughts on what they undertook in their training and how they can support you in school.
