Building Emotional Resilience with STEM4

27th September 2023

On 26 September we hosted a Stem4 Schools Conference focusing on mental and emotional well-being for young people.

Forty of our own Year 9 students welcomed ten students each from local schools Oxted, Royal Alexander & Albert, Ashcombe, Merstham Park and Reigate School.

It was a valuable opportunity to highlight the importance of students’ wellbeing, and the topics we covered included enhancing wellbeing and resilience, together with how to identify and take steps to manage stress, anxiety, depression, addiction, self-harm, and eating disorders in themselves and in friends.

To finish, students were encouraged to get involved in taking the lead in cascading positive messages within their school and among their peers about looking after their mental health.
