Stem4

Conference or Workshop experience

I have attended both of the stem4 conferences which have been held in schools in my local area with the most recent being hosted by my school Harris Academy Merton of which I am a year 12 student. At the conferences you learn about the severity of mental health illnesses in young adults that is not necessarily so obvious to all. Through the various activities we saw that mental health illnesses can come in many different forms and are not always as obvious as you think. One thing that stands out for me from experiencing two conferences is how a great awareness is created through encouragement to interact with students from others schools; the result in this being that you learn a vast amount of information without really realising it.
