Mental Health

Our Mental Health Team cares about mental health wellbeing and reducing the levels of stress and anxiety on campus. This dynamic team of students adopts a peer to peer education method to talk to students and staff on campus about self-care, stigma, tips and tools on how to reduce stress, the benefits of smiling and many more. 

Meet our team during our event Stressbusters to get a wellness kit and information on mental health resources. For more information, visit us in UCU203.
