University Mental Health Day

University Mental Health and Wellbeing Day aims to highlight the importance of looking after our own mental health as well as supporting others at university.

University Mental Health Day is on Tuesday 5 May 2020 under the theme of Use Your Voice.

We all have valuable insights and stories to share about our experiences of mental health. By contributing to the conversation, we can use our voices to shape the future of mental health.

It’s also important to acknowledge that we are living in an unprecedented time of uncertainty and unpredictability with COVID-19, and looking after our wellbeing has never been more essential to help us cope effectively
