Mental Health Awareness Day today! (20/2/13)

We're down in the Atrium all day for Mental Health Awareness Day! Check out the event here:


In association with Warwick Psych Soc, UMHAN, IAPT, Coventry Mind, Drinkaware, Mental Wealth UK and MindApples, Warwick Student Support and Warwick SU will be hosting a number of stalls and activities aimed at reducing stigma and promoting mental health and well-being:

Wellbeing Checks (all day)

EQHO Performance and Salsa Workshop (between 1:00pm - 2:00pm)

Coventry Mind's mobile wellbeing resource bus, Journey, will be parked on the Piazza and welcomes staff and students alike to find out more about the range of support that is available locally.

We are currently approaching one of the busiest and most stressful times in the University calendar. Many students are revising and preparing for exams and finals and, understandably, it can be hard to find the time to take care of your wellbeing!


We’ve all heard that eating five fruit and vegetables a day is good for your physical health. Did you know that there’s a “5-a-day for mental health"? Following extensive research, the Foresight Mental Capital and Wellbeing Project identified 5 activities which promote mental wellbeing:

1: Connect… With the people around you. With family, friends and fellow students.

2: Be active… Go for a walk or run. Step outside. Cycle. Dance. Exercising makes you feel good.

3: Take notice… Be curious. Catch sight of the beautiful. Remark on the unusual. Notice the changing seasons. Savour the moment, whether you are walking to work, eating lunch or talking to friends.

4:Keep learning… Try something new. Rediscover an old interest. Learn to play a musical instrument.

5: Give … Do something nice for a friend, or a stranger. Thank someone. Smile. Volunteer your time. Join a community group. Look out, as well as in.

Before you say “I haven’t got the time”, consider that we all have the same number of hours in the day. Devoting time each day to activities which promote mental health and well-being can lead to improvements in:

- Your overall level of wellbeing
- Effective time management
- Meeting the demands of study and student life
- Your ability to fulfill your academic potential

It’s worth the investment!
