A number of events are taking place across campus this week in support of University Mental Health Day.
The events encourage you to ‘get active for mental health’ and include a range of activities, from climbing to table tennis, archery to ultimate Frisbee. You can also gain free access to the swimming pool, go on a guided walk around campus, attend a crafting event and take a dance lesson.
If you prefer activities with a slower pace, there are also a number of talks, including:
- My Mate is Struggling…What Can I Do?
- Demystifying Mental Health: A talk by Professor Richard Bentall
- University Mental Health Day: A Talk by James Elliot
During the week, the Athletic Union Executive Committee will also be launching their One Question campaign. They are encouraging all students at the University through our sport clubs to ask one question to help their mental health.
To learn more about the activities on offer and to read the full itinerary, please read the Active Mental Health guide.
Last year, over 70 universities, including more than 3,000 students and 650 members of staff, took part in University Mental Health Day.
University Mental Health Day is organised by Sport Liverpool, Liverpool Guild of Students and the Counselling Service.
