Thirteen pupils in the Fourth Form (Year 9) have been working with the Anna Freud Centre to develop an app to help end mental health discrimination amongst adolescents.
Before the Easter holidays, the boys took part in focus groups to research ideas around the causes and impact of mental health stigma. Building on these findings, the pupils then visited the Anna Freud Centre in North London after school for two evenings in early May to build the app alongside professional developers.
One of the pupils said: "I really wanted to help other young people have the kinds of conversations about mental health that we have at St Paul's."
The app now moves into the formal development stage with the hope of it one day being available to schoolchildren across London.
