It’s Time to Talk

Time to Talk Day 2019 is taking place on Thursday 7 February. Mental health problems affect one in four of us, yet people are still afraid to talk about it. On Time to Talk Day we want everyone to have a conversation about mental health.

Throughout this week, students and staff at WHS will be involved in awareness raising activities, sparking these important conversations.

In WHS a number of staff have been trained to be mental Health ‘First Aiders’. They wear Green Ribbon Pin Badges (the symbol of the Mental Health Foundation), so that students can identify them should they need to speak to someone about any worries or stresses they have. In addition, we have a Sixth Form Mentors Programme, whereby a selection of Sixth Formers have been trained to lend support to peers in the younger year groups. The mentors run ‘Wellbeing Wednesday’ sessions into which students can drop in for a supportive chat.
