An interview with Inge Akker, social worker at BBS secondary school
The world is still in the midst of an on-going global pandemic, and though we can finally already see the light at the end of the tunnel, the last 18 months have taken a strain on all of us. With “World Mental Health Day” approaching on Sunday, 10 October, we caught up with Inge Akker, who works as the social worker at the secondary school in Granitzstraße to talk to her about mental health and well-being. Inge has been working at BBS since 2013. Until approximately one and a half years ago she was working at the primary school in Weinstraße. Originally from the Netherlands, Inge worked with troubled young adults in Amsterdam for six years before deciding to move to Berlin to further her personal and professional development.
