MENTAL HEALTH MONTH

08 Jan - 26 Jan 2018

ABOUT

‘Mental health’ is described as being the state of your psychological and emotional wellbeing. Everyone has mental health. Take care of yours. 

Mental Health Month is the Students’ Guild campaign to raise awareness of mental health issues and to start breaking down the stigma around mental health on campus. 

The month will feature a variety of events and activities hosted by the Students’ Guild and your VP Welfare and Diversity, Kat, to help you look after your mental health and wellbeing and provide opportunities to find out more about the support available to you in Exeter.

If exam week leaves you feeling a little tired, pop into the nap room in the A&V conference room any time throughout to catch some well deserved rest. 

Over the past few years, our students have championed the creation of a Wellbeing Information Directory (WiD) to show what services exist to support you in times or bad mental health. Check it out here.

 

“Mental health difficulties can affect anyone at any time, and sometimes that’s really difficult to come to terms with. I’ve always thought of myself as extremely resilient, and whatever life had thrown at me so far, I’d always coped really well. So when one day suddenly everything wasn’t okay anymore, I really struggled to accept that. Over time I learned that being kind to yourself and letting yourself experience all those different emotions really helped. Taking one day at a time, setting realistic and manageable goals and keeping busy were all helpful strategies. And also the realisation that, even though it sometimes doesn’t seem like it, there is always hope. Whatever you’re going through, remember you’re not defined by what you are experiencing right now and one day you’ll be able to look back on this time and just be so proud that you made it through.” Amelie #HearMeOut #mentalhealthmonth
