The 10th October is World Mental Health Day and this year’s theme is ‘Mental Health is a Human Right’. The day acts as a great reminder to continue to normalise conversations around mental health and learn more about the different services that can help you with your mental health and wellbeing.
It can be difficult to reach out for help but there are a wide range of resources that you can access, so you don’t struggle on your own.
On the 10th October, to mark the day, why not pop over to the Students’ Union’s Refresh and Recuperate event? Meet a range of societies and wellbeing services and try out some self-care and wellbeing activities.
