Claydon High School welcomes Dr Dan to talk about mental health

Earlier this year, Dr Dan was interviewed by a group of students from Claydon High School as part of the BBC's School Report Day, where children from schools across the country take over their local radio stations and become budding broadcasters for the day. During the show, Dr Dan was invited to visit the school to hear about the work they are doing to raise awareness of the importance of mental  health.

On Friday 28 April, Dr Dan was welcomed to the school and after a brief meeting with the Head, Dr Dan met the students to talk about the importance of breaking stigma in mental health and recognising when others may be in need of support.  The students were very happy to talk to Dr Dan about the Anchor Programme, an initiative run by Volunteering Matters, aiming to raise awareness of mental heealth issues.

As well as discussing mental health, the students were also keen to talk to Dr Dan about the forthcoming General Election and it was clear to see that the students here are very engaged with the politics of the day.

Dr Dan is looking forward to a return visit to the school to hear more about the Anchor programme and their progress.
