We know that 1 in 4 of us will struggle with our mental health each year and many more will be affected by the stigma surrounding mental illness, but lots of us struggle to find the words to talk about how we're feeling.
That's why each year we organise Mental Health and Wellbeing Week - a week-long programme of events and activities focused on mental health which aim to support, inspire and challenge the University community.
Mental Health and Wellbeing Week 2018 will run from November 12th to 16th, and we've got a fantastic programme of events and activities designed to support, inspire and challenge the University community!
You can find event highlights below and the full programme here.
We know mental health is something which affects people year-round, and while Mental Health and Wellbeing Week has a clear impact, there's always more to be done.
- - If you have any questions about looking after your own mental health, supporting a friend, or mental health more generally, check out our list of resources and services.
- - If you have a mental illness and would like to build a community with your peers, consider joining the Students' Association's Disabled Students' Campaign which exists to provide support and representation for students like you.
