Hi, I’m Katharine, the 2018/19 Student Union Welfare Officer. Mental health and wellbeing is a massively talked about issue at the moment, and something that affects all of our lives. World Mental Health Day is on October 10th, and the theme this year is ‘young people in a changing world.’
In partnership with the University, we’re running Our Mental Health Week, a week of wellbeing activities, workshops, discussions and speakers. Aimed at both students and staff, our aim is to bolster a dialogue around mental health, and destigmatise mental illness in our community.
You can buy tickets right here, or check out the full programme on Facebook. Or come to the OMHW hub, every day from 11-4pm in the Gallery of the Students Union, to find out more.
