Jamie spoke to our second year students to kick off Positive Mental Health Week. Over the years, we have had many guest speakers in to address our students but I can honestly say that I have never had a speaker before who engaged so well with the students. He was honest, raw and to the point. Jamie is a passionate advocate of positive mental health. He uses his own experiences to ground his talks and the students really responded to him.
Teachers also commented on the importance of what he had to say, his engaging personality, his wit and humor. My students said afterwards that they did not feel he was lecturing them. They felt he was honest and direct, something which is often absent in talks on mental health. Jamie is someone I admire and, having listened to him, I know many of my students feel the same. I would strongly encourage other schools to hear him speak.
