Trigger Warning: This podcast discusses Mental Health in Schools, self-harm in young people and the important work of the Shaw Mind Foundation.
We were so privileged to speak to Kate Majid, CEO of Shaw Mind Foundation. I found it really fantastic when Kate was talking about the importance of mental health in schools and how their petition was the first by a charity to prompt a parlimentary debate. This was another fantastic interview and I learnt so much. Hope you enjoy this episode.
