Celebrating World Mental Health Day

Unified Academy’s Student Voice met this week to discuss World Mental Health Day (WMHD), and what  ‘good’ mental health feels like and means to them. They concluded that even though it means different things to everyone, they all agreed that respect, tolerance, kindness and understanding from those around them was key. They made badges using the WMHD colours and gifted them to staff and students to show their unity and support for each other as a school.

My son joined Unified Academy in September 2020 and it is the best educational setting for him.  As a parent, I was apprehensive about my son attending a new place, but the experience for him has been fantastic. Having had a tough time in previous schools, his attitude to attending school has been difficult. Unified Academy has changed his attitude towards school and that is thanks to the positivity of all the staff.  My son finally feels accepted and that is a great weight off my shoulders!
