In a heartfelt endeavor to enhance mental health support for schoolchildren in Warrington, Esther, the mother of Brianna Ghey, spearheaded the Peace in Mind campaign alongside the Warrington Guardian. This initiative, taken out of a tragic loss, is committed to positively impacting the mental well-being of young students in the town.
Brianna Ghey, a 16-year-old, tragically died earlier this year, leaving a community devastated by her passing. The Peace in Mind campaign is a tribute to her memory, aiming to raise funds and create a better support system for schoolchildren’s mental health in Warrington.
