Kooth Assembly - 19th April 2018
Mental Health Assembly
Here at Ken Stimpson school we take our students mental health seriously and already offer various different elements of support in school. We are keen to inform our students of the services that are also available to students outside of school and this week we were delighted to welcome Tim Coombe from Kooth into school. He delivered assemblies to all year groups talking about the services that Kooth has to offer young people in our school.
Kooth is an online support service that offers
• Safe, confidential, anonymous advice
• Free at the point of need
• Available through a smart phone, tablet or computer Kooth helps to reduce wait times for young people seeking help and removes stigma around mental health.
All students from all year groups attended a separate year group assembly of 25 minutes each.
