University Mental Health and Wellbeing Day is an annual event to promote the mental health of those who live and work in higher education settings. This year it will be held on Wednesday 19th February.
The International Centre for Mental Health Social Research (ICMHSR) and the Department of Social Policy and Social Work are marking the event by sharing ideas about what we do to look after our minds.
ICMHSR have put up a Mindapples tree in the reception of the Department of Social Policy and Social Work in Alcuin College C block. Hanging on the tree are Mindapples: notes about simple day-to-day activities that we do which are good for our minds.
“We invite all staff, students and visitors of the University to contribute to the Mindapples tree,” says Professor Martin Webber, Reader in Social Work and ICMHSR Director. “Pens and Mindapple cards are available in the reception area. Please take a few minutes of your time to fill out your Mindapples and hang them on the tree.”
The tree will be on display in Alcuin College C block for several weeks. Everyone is welcome to come along and see what others do to look after their minds.
