Mental Health Awarness Week
1 in 4 people in the UK with experience a mental health problem each year.  The effects are just as real as breaking an arm or a leg.  Just as we all need to look after our physical health, we all need to look after our mental health too.
That’s why Redbridge College is getting involved in Mental Health Awareness Week this week!  Several local organisations will be joining in some of your tutorial sessions to help you to think about staying mentally healthy and supporting your friends. They will also hold stalls in the canteen on Monday and Friday lunchtimes.  Come along and get some information or chat with our visitors.
Have a look at this fun video to get started thinking about mental health: http://www.time-to-change.org.uk/wolfpack
