On Wednesday of Week 6, Lancaster University will host an array of events to promote University Mental Health and Wellbeing day. The annual event is aimed at promoting the mental health and wellbeing of people who study or work in further education. The day also aims at reducing the stigmatisation and discrimination associated with mental health issues.
To boost awareness of event, the University is working in partnership with LUSU to bring the students and employees of the University an array of planned activities. These activities include complementary Shiatsu massage sessions by a trained therapist; a relaxation drop-in session to ease exam stress; a sleep specialist in the library giving tips for better sleep and a cake sale to raise money for a mental health charity.
SCAN spoke to Tom Fox, VP Welfare and Community, who said that “Next Wednesday will be a great opportunity for students to drop into the square, ask for a range of advice from a selection of professionals within the Student Based Services, and walk away knowing where to go if they need help in the future.”
The event is running in Alexandra Square from 10am till 3pm, so feel free to come along and help end discrimination towards mental health.
