Harlequins Theatre School helps students with mental health issues following prolonged lockdown

A theatre school in Bromley has helped students with their mental health after noticing issues arising caused by the prolonged lockdown.

Members of the team at Harlequins Theatre School have called every student to check in on them – as well as sending a mental health guide to all parents.

They have also organised two free workshops with mental health professionals next month.

Debbie Elwell, co-principal of the school, said: “We think it’s really important to do something to support our students during this difficult time.

“Some of our students, as young as five have been struggling with their well-being, it’s affecting their concentration and performance.”

The singing, dancing and drama classes are also keeping the children going at the moment by giving them a sense of routine.
