Mental Health Champions for Goffs-Churchgate

Hello! My name is Martin Griffiths. I am a consultant vascular and trauma surgeon and lead for trauma surgery at the Royal London Hospital. I am also a Deputy Lieutenant for Greater London. This July will be the fourth year I have attended Goffs-Churchgate Academy’s Health and Wellbeing day. I will be speaking to the students about my work in the hospital and about making good life choices. I am delighted and honoured to be a Friend of Goffs-Churchgate Academy


'Hello there! My name is Helen Barnett. I suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder as a result of injuries I received in the Metropolitan Police Service. I struggle with my mental health to this day, but exercise has genuinely been a life saver........and talking to the right people! The school is working with Herts MIND Network, the Samaritans and the school nurse's team to do amazing things to support the pupils, staff and their families. I am really proud to be a Friend of Goffs-Churchgate Academy.
