16th January 23
Today, 16th January 2023, marks this year’s Blue Monday, an awareness day that highlights depression at this time of the year.
With the aim of spreading some extra cheer amongst the staff and students at DLD College London, we asked students to leave a positive note on the white board to ‘pass on the positivity’. This went out on Sunday evening, so that students entering the school on Monday morning could read the notes left by our boarders and add their own positive thoughts throughout the day. This had students asking lots of questions about Blue Monday, sparking conversations around mental health and wellbeing, leading to students sharing their self-care advice as ways of improving their mental wellbeing.
It was great to see the students getting involved and the positive conversations that started from this small effort to raise awareness.
