University Mental Health Day - 1st March

Monday 26-02-2018 - 10:33

University Mental Health Day is the national campaign to focus efforts on promoting the mental health of people who live, work and study in Higher Education settings. Run jointly by Student Minds and UMHAN, we are encouraging all university students and staff to get involved!

This year's theme is based around community.  Whether you’re a student, a member of support staff, an academic, or a senior university leader, we all have a part to play to cultivate a positive mental health community at university

The University Well-Being Team (Student Support), Seedbeds, Beds SU and Aspire Gym are working together to promote 5 ways to improve Mental Well-Being, this includes:

  • Connect with others - family, friends, other students. Building these connections will support and enrich your life 
  • Be active - run, walk or dance. Play a game. Most importantly, find a physical activity that suits you
  • Be curious – take notice of the world around you. Savour the moment. Reflect on your experiences
  • Challenge yourself - Learn something new, rediscover an old interest. Learning new skills can increase your confidence
  • Give - Do something positive for others. Smile, volunteer; the rewards of looking outside yourself to others can create positive connections with those around you.

Come and find us in Luton and Bedford where you will be able to take part in numerous activities!
