Episode 22: In conversation with Maddison

Listen below:

In this episode of the HeadStart 4YP podcast we talk to Maddison, a Year 11 student attending The Nightingale Centre in Wolverhampton.

Maddison has experienced a number of traumatic events in her life, including abuse and bullying. In the conversation she discusses the impact these events have had upon her mental health and self esteem, and how she has sometimes coped by self harming and behaving disruptively. Her honesty and self awareness have much to teach us.

Huge thanks to Maddison, and to Mrs. Watson and the team at The Nightingale Centre for facilitating the recording.

HeadStart have done an amazing job capturing real insights into some of the barriers and challenges that our students have had to deal with and how this has impacted so much on their mental health.
