Calderstones students inspire for World Mental Health Day

World Mental Health Day took place on Saturday 10 October, an annual celebration of mental health education, awareness and advocacy.

To help promote awareness of mental health, pupils at Calderstones School in Liverpool took part in a competition with the Liverpool Children and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS).

The competition involved young people aged 8-25 across the city with the task of creating an ‘Inspire Card’. The card included a positive thought or image that was then used as part of Liverpool’s celebration of World Mental Health Day. The campaign concluded at an event at Williamson Square on Saturday, where each of the winning cards was displayed to the public.

Out of 900 entries collected, there were 33 winners chosen throughout Liverpool, and six Calderstones pupils had their winning designs highlighted in the campaign. Congratulations to Phoebe Cowin, Ellie Power, Francisco Montano, Faye Mills, Nyree Richards and Kaitan Fenn.

Other winners included pupils from St Julies Catholic High School, Holy Cross Primary, Archbishop Beck, St Celia’s Juniors, The Belvedere Academy, Broughton Hall, Sandfield Park Primary, St Charles Primary and Faith Primary School.

The lucky winners each received a £10 Liverpool One voucher, a certificate and a copy of all the Inspire Cards produced.

The Inspire Cards will be used to highlight mental health awareness in schools across Liverpool during the month of October. To view all the winning designs, visit:
