Stand Together for Mental Health
Are you mindful of your mental health? Most of us go to the doctor for annual checkups. But how often do you check your mental health? Being mindful of your mental health is just as important as checking your physical health.
During Mental Health Awareness Week, students, faculty and staff will have the opportunity to show support for mental health and discover more about mental health resources. Various activities and events are scheduled throughout the campus which promote ways to improve or maintain your mental health.
Snap a photo of you with your friends or colleagues or a selfie wearing green during mental health week, print the photo, and add it to the Wall of Hope outside The Multicultural Center, formerly Office of Diversity and Multiculturalism, located in Walb Union, Room 118.
Photos or words of support and encouragement can be added throughout the week.
