The staff and pupils of Banbridge Academy recently collected £400 for the charity Action Mental Health. Action Mental Health (AMH) is a leading mental health charity with projects throughout Northern Ireland focused on making a positive difference to people’s mental health and wellbeing. They offer bespoke opportunities for people, supporting the recovery journey, as well as knowledge and skills development regarding mental health promotion, suicide & self-harm prevention and counselling. AMH’s vision is to see “A society which actively values and supports people on their journey to positive mental health.”
AMH has done a lot of work with the pupils in school over the years and this money was raised during one of the weekly charity collections.
