Notebook Sketch
Mental Health & School: Press

“I feel like secondary schools should teach life management because there are so many things that happen when you’re 18 and you leave school. You can go to Uni, get a job, take a gap year - that freedom is actually kind of scary. The idea of being completely free, and being able to do whatever you want; Sometimes it's like being put in a field and not being told where to go. You don’t know what to do.  If we were taught those tools and what to do, then I think a lot of people would benefit.”

“Literally nobody ever taught me how to talk about my feelings. PSHE lessons do sometimes emphasize “go to the nurse, talk to a teacher or a parent”, but that’s just the basic things and I feel like there should be a master class on how to communicate feelings because how do you actually do that. It’s so scary. “

"I always loved PSHE talks on mental health and addiction, but I never felt like I was hearing my story. I wish that someone had told me other teenagers experience what I had been going through"
