Mental health awareness for families

By Laura Marks

KING Solomon High School recently hosted a mental health awareness session for their parents and the community.

The evening was funded by The Oli Leigh Trust, set up by Michelle Leigh, after her son Oli took his own life five years ago.

Michelle, who grew up in Longwood Gardens and attended Beal High School, has raised thousands of pounds to help fund specialists who are experts in their field to talk to teenagers and parents about mental health.

Speakers from the OLLIE Foundation – a charity dedicated to delivering suicide awareness, intervention and prevention – delivered the talk and held a Q&A with parents at the end.
