This afternoon, Bronnie, a Pop/Rock Artist from the North West, visited Kirkham Grammar School to deliver a PSHE session to our First, Second and Third Year pupils. Having had her own struggles with bullying, body image and mental health, Bronnie was the perfect advocate to deliver such a positive message.
Bronnie discussed mental health, the causes of mental health problems (stress at school, relationships etc.), a time when she has had her own mental health issues, who to turn to for help and the importance of speaking up. She also spoke about the stresses of the last year during the pandemic, the loss we might all have felt and how we can all better handle the unpredictability and hardship of it all. She linked mental health to body image which has become a real issue for the younger generation linked to social media. She discussed the importance of treating each other fairly, why diversity should be celebrated, what to do if you're being discriminated against and why it is wrong to discriminate against other people.
Towards the end of the presentation, Bronnie held a Q&A session which gave pupils the opportunity to ask any questions they had.
Thank you, Bronnie, for taking the time to visit KGS!
