Mental Health Awareness Week

Mental Health Awareness Week collage

As part of the school’s Mental Health Awareness Week activities we are delighted to welcome OE Shantanu Kundu to give a talk. Shantanu left KES in 2018 and whilst he was at school he was an advocate for mental health.

He left to go to Liverpool University and has since founded a very successful charity, with the aim of challenging the stigma that surrounds mental health and empowering young people to be who they want to be. The charity is active in the community running coffee mornings to concerts and regularly running school-based workshops.

The charity is part-funded by the lottery and O2 and Shantanu was shortlisted for activist of the year by the guild at Liverpool University.

He is going to talk about kindness, passion and prioritising our wellbeing.  Please join us at 4.15pm on Tuesday 19 May, Zoom code can be found on Firefly.
