Stop the Hurt


Selected RPA students have been offered a really exciting work experience opportunity filming a documentary called, ‘Stop The Hurt,’ in May on knife crime in association with Iconic Group, a performing arts social enterprise community. Knife crime proves an increasing problem for many parts of the UK – and not just our big cities. Communities in smaller market towns have also felt its devastating effects and are keen to find ways of reducing it. Examining issues such as ‘county lines’, workshops will incorporate all elements of a production including storyboarding, filming, acting and editing with students getting to work alongside professional artists, performers and creatives. The results will be shared online and participants taking part will continue to receive mentoring support after the project has ended.

Mental Health Awareness Week


Mental Health Awareness Week will take place from 10-16 May 2021. The theme is ‘Nature’.

“The evidence is clear that access to nature is crucial for our mental health and millions of people re-discovered that during lockdowns this year. However, this was not the same for all of us. We want to explore what the barriers are and ensure everyone is able to share in the natural world and experience the mental health benefits.”

Whilst people may not have access to the natural world in terms of parks, gardens, woodland, or the countryside, we all have access to the natural world i.e. [looking at] the sky, the sun, clouds, experiencing weather, hearing birdsong, seeing butterflies and animals. Even built up areas have pockets of the natural world for example tree planters and patches of grass. We just need to pay attention to them; simply appreciate the wind in our hair, the sun on our backs, even the rain on our faces, or a vase of cut flowers indoors.

“We are not saying that nature is the only priority that is important. And nature is not going to solve all mental health issues. But connecting with nature can play an important part in improving people’s mental health and make us feel better about ourselves.

During lockdown, nature has played a vital part in supporting mental health. According to our own research, last summer half of people in the UK said that being in nature was a favoured way to cope with the stress of the pandemic.”
