Aquinas College SWAT Project

Marcus and Bridget wanted to tackle suppression as they felt like many of their peers were not wanting to talk about when they were going through a tough time. They decided that the best way to encourage young people to talk about their mental health was to have a guest speaker come out to share their story. They organised to have Scott Harris come to the school to talk about his experience in mental health after a bike accident. The students all responded really well to Scott's presentation and gave positive feedback.

Demonstrated character strengths:

  • Creativity
  • Perseverance
  • Teamwork
