  • Promote an awareness among young people of the importance of positive mental health and of the causes and effects of mental illness
  • Introduce students to public speaking
  • Reduce negative attitudes and prejudices associated with mental illness

  • Self confidence
  • Rapport and relationship with parents and fellow students
  • Encouragement of social awareness and values
  • Career motivation
  • Success at interviews and examinations
  • Broader understanding and appreciation of the concerns of disadvantaged groups and social problems
  • School and community co-operation and sense of pride and achievement
  • Research methods and topic analysis
