University Mental Health & Wellbeing Day


On Wednesday 9th March Loughborough’s Student Union will bring you the annual University Mental Health and Wellbeing Day. From 11am to 4pm there will be a flurry of activities, interactive stalls and experiences for everyone to enjoy and participate in. Head down to the Piazza and Room One this Wednesday between 11am and 4pm to pick up your free ‘Heads Together’ goodie bag and support mental health.

The theme of the day Heads Together strives to promote a unified approach in all of our attitudes towards mental health. The free flowing atmosphere and flexible agenda of the day should enable people to make the most of the day.

In attendance will be representatives from local support services such as the Charnwood Mental Health Network, the Mental Health Association Heads Up as well as the Disability Support Network and other various University Support Teams.

Events throughout the day include a Mindfulness Tipi in Room One, Recovery Tree, Art Therapy Corner, live acoustic performances, spoken word, Nightline Chat and Chill to promote their new instant messaging service as well as a Self Help Selfie station, so go down and take a self help selfie and see your selfie be collage on the Self Help Selfie collage.

We’ll be running a Library stall down at the Union too, between 11am-3pm, extolling the virtues of our mood-boosting and leisure reading ranges and asking you to ‘leave a leaf’ on our very own library tree by telling us what your favourite book is.
