SUCCESSFUL MENTAL HEALTH WEEK AT PASTON SIXTH FORM COLLEGE

Norman was invited by the Student Executive who were keen to listen to his views on mental health provision in the UK. Norman spoke candidly about his own family’s personal experience of mental health. He impressed the students with his knowledge and passion to support people in this region and throughout the Country who suffer from mental health issues. The session included a range of questions from the students who questioned him on his views and mental health provision.

Bella Whitely-Tye who organised the event said “We were very grateful to Norman Lamb providing an inspiring talk on mental health issues. It was brilliant to see so many attending the event”.

Throughout the week, students have been engaged in a range of activities, including “Tea and Talk” every day in the Study Centre, a well-being drop in service, support for exam stress and a session from the Charity, Mind. The students organised a cake bake and raised over £200 for Norwich Mind.

Kevin Grieve, Principal, said “The week has been a tremendous success with excellent participation from staff and students. It was very kind of Norman to give up his time to speak to the students on mental health issues”.
