The importance of talking and knowing that you will be listened to, when you are in crisis, was the clear message delivered to our year 9 students during R Time, from Samaritans. Our two guest speakers talked about emotional well being and also highlighted the issue of self harming.
They provided excellent guidance about what help is available and the fact that help is out there if you need it. This was an important message for the whole our year 9 cohort. Conducting these sessions in classroom settings is an excellent way to make students feel they can ask questions and explore the issues raised.
