Mental Health Day 3: Social Media

It is hard for many young people to escape the pressures of social media. There is no switching off for many students as the popularity of it grows. Today the students were invited to watch a performance based on the pressures of social media and how people can do things to try and fit in.

The drama performance consisted of a young girl who has trusted in a boy and sent him a photograph of herself. She struggled to cope with the pressure and bullying from other young girls when they found out.

The message of the story was to seek support from those around you. It doesn't matter how bad you think your situation is, with help, it can get better.

This will be performed again tomorrow, check back for the video.
