Feedback from a Year 11 student
“I just wanted to say thank you. I’ve been struggling with depression and anxiety this year and I think it’s really great that you’re at our school talking about this. I’ve heard a lot of people in my year talk about mental illness and say a lot of things that are negative or incorrect, so I’m glad there is someone educating them about it so that they are aware – thank you!”
