Sally Jane Brampton, journalist and author.

I was saddened to hear the news today of the death of former Ashford School boarder Sally Brampton. I did not know her personally but am grateful to her for being open about her struggle with depression and hence raising the profile of the importance of good mental health. It is a topic of importance in schools in general and one that deserves high profile.
