Trinity’s first Mental Health Awareness Week took place between18th – 22nd March 2019. 

Jenny Langley, from the Charlie Waller Memorial Trust (CWMT), has been holding coaching sessions with small groups of students throughout the school.  At the end of the week each student will have benefited from one of her sessions.

CWMT’s programme for schools and young people provides evidence-based presentations and training to schools that motivate, inform and provide practical ideas and tools that can be easily implemented.

Jenny came to Trinity in February to train the staff and so during her time here during Mental Health Awareness Week, she spoke at our Parents Information evening as part of our whole school approach to raising awareness of mental health among young people. The presentation was Managing Teenage Anxieties.  Jenny hosted a very successful evening and gave practical tips to help with the emotional wellbeing of our children.  View her presentation below:
