talk easy mental health awareness day, 24th ocotber 2013
‘The Talk Easy Trust’
First of all thank you for taking the time to read this letter. I am writing on behalf of ‘The Talk Easy Trust’. The Trust is a new anti-bullying charity set up within Sutton (London and South East). Having set up within the local borough, we are now offering help and support to victims of bullying and suffer of depression in 5 schools. Our aim:
‘To help and support students all over London’
Having set the trust up as part of the Young Enterprise scheme, we look to offer students advice and support from other students who have had training and guidance from a range of sources. We have already received support from local MP’s, celebrities and headmasters who all see the value and necessity of what we are trying to do. Our team recently helped a new a national charity ‘MindFull’ launch their services. Members of our team gave a speech straight after the leader of the Labour Party Ed Milliband.
The Trust has grown hugely over the past few months and we are currently in the process of planning events which will help further assist to break down the stigma of mental health.
The reason we are writing to you today is to inform you of the creation of our mental health awareness day which is backed by Thomas Brake MP. The day will be held all over Sutton schools where students will be granted the chance to learn more about their own mental health. The day will consist of a presentation, being delivered by a designated teacher, outlining the signs of certain mental health disorders. The whole aim of the day is to make pupils aware that talking about mental health is okay!!
In the evening, a presentation will take place for parents from all Sutton schools who are keen to learn a little bit more about their child’s mental health. The presentation will include spotting the signs of changes in your son/daughters behavior. There will also be the chance to ask questions to mental health professionals and to other young people who have suffered from a mental health illness. The event will start at 6.30pm and will last around an hour. It will give parents a chance to ask questions and raise issues when it comes to mental health.
Tea and Coffee will be available on site before and after the presentation. The event will take place at:
