World Mental Health Day is on 10th October each year. This year's theme set by the World Federation for Mental Health is 'mental health for all'. With the changes that everyone has gone through over the last few months, we know that this has had a big impact on mental health; we want to offer some tips for prioritising your own mental health and getting the right support for you.
Some of our Digital Tribe creators will be online from Saturday:
- Jess from @jessgloverfitness will be talking about coping with burnout and how being active can support your mental health.
- Ella from @bakewellbeing is doing a Tea and Talk session, and is running a fun campaign called #ibaketo where you can show how you might use baking to relief mental stress.
Follow us at instagram.com/greenwichstudentsunion and look out for their posts on IGTV!
Our Officers will also be giving their tips for looking after mental health on their social channels over the weekend - find Bilal, Niel, Zoë and Mayo on Instagram.
The University have some great tips for showing your support for good mental health and looking after your own wellbeing.
Mental Health is as important as physical health, and there are resources and services that you can access at Greenwich to support your mental health. You can find the details of the University's Student Wellbeing Service on the University website. Our Advice Service is also available for free, impartial and confidential advice. As a student, you can also access Togetherall, an anonymous 24/7 peer-to-peer platform - you just need to register with your University email address.
From all of us at Greenwich Students' Union, we hope your mental health is well and that you know we're here to support you to have a great time at Greenwich.
