CMC's Bigger Picture

Mental Health is a difficult issue to tackle in a school environment because often simply discussing it can dampen the mood of the student body. This year, our Student Leadership Team’s aim was to do more than just to introduce mental health to the minds of students and teachers at Clairvaux MacKillop College; but instead change the way that we act as individuals, to pave the way for a morehealthy, respectful, responsive and diverse community.

It is often easy to believe that we are all alone in this world. And throughout the first few weeks of school we saw this mentality within some students that they have to fight the battles of teenage life all by themselves and that they are alone a single drop in a massive ocean. This needs to be changed.
