Time to Change

Dereham Neatherd High School has worked with the organisation Time to Change to make mental health issues a topic of open discussion throughout the school. This month, Time to Change is asking schools across the country to join its Make Time 4 Mental Health programme, by committing to deliver four free 10-minute scripted lessons and kick-start discussion among pupils.

Assistant headteacher Nick O’Brien said Neatherd’s own programme – introduced first for teachers, then extended to students – had had such a positive effect the school was looking at how it could be shared with others in Norfolk. “It’s like physical health: you need to work on it and be able to talk about it, and take away the stigma,” he said.
