International Mental Health Campaigner

Talk at Akeley Wood House

We were delighted to welcome Hope Virgo, leading international mental health campaigner, to Akeley Wood House. She gave heartfelt, informative talks throughout the afternoon to students, to staff and parents on Mental Health, drawing from her own experience. Hope explained how we need to be aware of our own and others’ mental health how we can support each other and how we should never underestimate the power of a simple conversation. She stressed the need to support her campaign drop the scales.

‘My daughter got so much out of it – the points she made about CAMHS, Hospital referrals etc., really touched a nerve with her. She is going to gain so much from this.’

‘We both got so much  from this talk and will now go home, talk it through and sign the dump the scales’ campaign.’ Thank you
