Successful Campaign for Mental Health Awareness

Successful Campaign for Mental Health Awareness

Posted: 27th October 2021

Epping St. John's School would like to thank all students, staff and the local community who participated in or donated towards ESJ's PSHE Mental Health Drop Down Day and the fundraiser to support Papyrus, a national charity dedicated to the prevention of young suicide, which took place on Friday 8th October.  At last count, Epping St. John's have raised a grand total of £4005.00!

The school are particularly grateful to Jake White, Head of PSHE, for his planning and organisation of the PSHE lesson content.

Jake said: “Students were engaged in really mature, thoughtful and sensitive discussions around the theme of mental health, raising awareness of the topic at a time when more people than ever are struggling with their mental health, a result of the lockdowns we have endured in the past 18 months.”

Guidance Manager, Mitch Reeves, who coordinated the Hope Walk for Papyrus said: “The whole idea behind the walk was to raise awareness of how many children take their own lives each year. It is a statistic that shocked me: 200.

“Suicide affects us all and is something close to my heart after my dad attempted to take his own life when I was 17. I could not be prouder of the kids and our incredible pastoral team, who supported me with the proposal from the moment I mentioned it.”

Head of School, Michael Yerosimou, was proud of the achievements of his staff and pupils, expressing:

“It really was quite moving to see all ESJ students gathered on the field to watch the pastoral team and selected students complete the last mile- smiling through the pain of blisters after their 20-mile trek! This truly encapsulated ESJ's Living Well Together school driver.”
