All Ears was set up in memory of Aleysha Rothwell who died by suicide in 2014, our aim is to help anyone else in a similar situation to her so that they feel supported.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), roughly 450 million people currently suffer from mental health conditions, placing mental disorders among the leading causes of ill-health and disability worldwide.
We at All Ears believe that awareness is key, and children shouldnt go without the essential information about Mental Health, just because the funding isnt available yet.
We want to inspire and educate. To start the conversation about mental health and to show those in school, that it is nothing to be ashamed of.
The community at All Ears are dedicated to providing the support that both pupils and staff within a school environment, do not get enough of when it comes to mental health. We want to firstly, educate; as Nelson Mandella once said "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world." Awareness is the first step, it encourages an acceptance of openly talking about mental health - which can be a life-saver in itself.
We have presentations which can be adapted to fit the needs of each year group or school, including time amendments. Also We offer the staff to give those presentations, although they can be given from a teacher within the school, if that is preferred.
'The Aleysha Promsie'
All Ears is also currently working closely with care leavers in our community to ensure they are surrounded by opportunities and support.
At the moment we are not able to offer actual counselling. However, when some members have achieved their degree, we will look into the possibilty of volunteering with a number of schools to offer the following:
